I hate to pile on, Frankie, but you really are one heck of a good singer.

thanks, all of you guys...  I actually did a Washington Phillips tune on the tiple last year...  I thought I'd posted it in here, somewhere, but I can't find it. My mum likes Mother's Prayer best, but this one is ok:

Yeah, that's the one it reminded of. So great, and such a beautiful tune. And makes me crave a tiple.

Very cool. The fingering looks like you're playing it out of G in standard tuning, is that right?

What a great idea to transfer that over to the fiddle, Frank!  Your little time lick on the fiddle has a nice rocking feel to it, and your falsetto is real pretty.  That one should be on a record.
All best,
Johnm

thanks, all of you. Prof, "scratchy" takes on a whole new meaning when I pick up the bow, doesn't it?

lastfirst - std, G - that's right.

John - thanks - I've played it for years, just because I thought it seemed so obvious to do and someone else MUST have done it, but it seems like it's only obvious to me. I'm glad you like it - I haven't played it for too many people and honestly, the reviews are usually kind of mixed, tilted toward the "puzzled." I still like it, though (if that doesn't sound too self congratulatory).

To me, that's the absolute best kind of "obvious", Frank.  Good going!

Beautifully understated, Frank!

I agree with you. Having spent a lot of time in various jug band configurations, the fiddle and the mouth harp have very similar "voices" and roles in a band, and it's rare that you ever hear them together unless they stay well out of each other's way. I have often suggested to fiddlers to cover harp parts and harpists to cover fiddle parts. To be honest, I think it was Johnm who I first heard suggest it, either in a post here, maybe 10 years ago, or in one of the guitar/fiddle duet classes that he and Suzy Thompson used to teach up at PT, where Suzy might have covered a harp part once. The fiddle really has the ability to produce a breath-like quality, which you utilize well.

Nothin' crazy about that. How 'bout "wise. old. man."
