These things that have come down orally over the centuries had to be the cream of the crop, or they'd have died out a long time ago - Almeda Riddle, quoted in The Southern Journey of Alan Lomax - Words, Photographs and Music, by Tom Piazza, LoC 2013

It's fascinating but very, very dense. I bought it and have been reading it in little bits, skipping around. It is awfully pricey but I figured it was probably required reading.

Hi all,
I know that this book has been discussed a bit on the forum in the past but I wasn't aware that it was finally published in February of this year. I did a search to see if anyone had posted here since it was released but I didn't find anything. Unfortunately it looks a bit pricey. Has anyone read or seen a copy? I'm curious to hear how it is.

Thanks for the heads up, Rivers.  There's no hurry, whenever you're ready to go is fine.

Sorry I'm a bit late with my September offering. We're kinda busy here getting everything set for the fall and winter. I should be able to post within the next week though. In the meantime if anyone wants to jump in and post one for September, have at it!

AF#-DD-AA-AD. Charlie Cline's fiddle is also in altered tuning, with the E string down to D. For more on this tune see "The Music of Bill Monroe", by Neil Rosenberg and Charles Wolfe (University of Illinois; 2007), p93.

Hi all,
Here's a great one from Bill Monroe, "Get Up John".  He has the mandolin cross-tuned so that not all of the pairs are in unisons.  What a sound!



All best,
Johnm
