Sugar Babe was the first piece I learned, when I was a little boy about 13 years old. Reason I know this so good, I got a whippin' about it. Come out of the cotton-patch to get some water and I was up at the house playin' the git-tar and my mother come in; whopped me cause I didn't come back - I was playin' the git-tar. Yeah, I got a whippin' bout Sugar Babe - I never will forgit that one - Mance Lipscomb, from his biography

Hi all,
This is another tuning where Jesse Thomas qualifies as a major stylist on the basis of only one song recorded in the tuning. "My Heart's A Rolling Stone" shows an altogether original voice and approach in this tuning, and how Jesse Thomas could have arrived at it while still in his teens is one of the great mysteries of this music, for conceptually this piece is way beyond picking the low-hanging fruit that the tuning makes available for the player who chooses it. Here is "My Heart's A Rolling Stone":



All best,
Johnm
