Nice tune, Roi, and it's great that you're making up tunes of your own.
All best,
Johnm

Great ditty! It has a Joseph Spence sound to it. Anyone know if Spence used the open C tuning?

Thanks for the listen!
I'm pretty sure all of Spence's songs were played in dropped-D, with a few exceptions maybe. For open-C look for Sylvester Weaver's 'Soft Steel Piston', Peg Leg Howell's 'Fairy Blues', Mike Seeger's 'Pearly Dew' and also a bunch of John Fahey tunes.

I will check those selections out. Not a common tuning. What you did was great. Nice playing!

I like that a lot Roi. Very nice melody. A little Fahey-ish, but nothin' wrong with that, in fact it seems like a good direction for people to explore.

Thanks, I actually like Fahey's playing a lot. This one was more influenced by Weaver's tune though, I think. Melody is sort of similar.
