Pretty sure it's my turn to pick the #banjototw. I've posted this one a bunch of times before but I don't think its been up for banjototw, so here's Patteroller/ gDGCD.

Finally getting back to the #banjototw ! Here's my favorite Hammons tune, 'Greasy Coat'. Played on the recently repaired Fielding banjo. // #banjo #clawhammer #clawhammerbanjo @cwdeanbanjos @brettratliff @zacpelo @d.cassells @cumberland_banjos @banjopete @mynameisbent @jdwilkes @dustyleeelmer

#banjototw determined by @zacpelo (quite the player) Sally Gooden I must work on my expression. This song makes me 😁 Just can't tell it. #dropthumbsnotbombs #clawhammerbanjo

#banjototw is Sugar in the Gourd #dropthumbsnotbombs

angeline the baker (double b flat)

"Glory to the Meeting House", @jdwilkes' pick for last week's Banjo Tune of the Week. This attempt is based on fiddler Charlie Stamper's version from his masterful album of the same name. Check it out! (... also, my hands are still being weird.)

IT'S A TWOFER! Sloshed and frustrated, I start my #banjototw with a holler before attempting @d.cassels' pick "Pateroller" and ending with "John Hardy" (the tune of the week from the week before). Next I need to massacre @cumberlandbanjo's selection of "Sally Goodin". I'll get there one day. @zacpelo @banjopete @dustyleeelmer @cwdeanbanjos @mirandaceara @squirrelbanjo @seedersinstruments #kitchentapes

It's been a while since I've thrown in on one of these #banjototw. This week @d.cassells picked Hobart Smith's "Pateroller Song". I've never played it before today and I don't claim to be playing it right. This is what my brain and fingers did after listening to it and trying to play it a couple of times. Played here on my #ssstewartbanjo, made only 30 years after slavery was abolished. BTW, if you're wondering what that has to do with this tune, Google "Pateroller".
Alright, enough ramblin'... hope you like it.

@d.cassells has chosen "Pateroller Song" as the #banjototw. I didn't know what a pateroller was, Googled it, and was reminded that some of these old time tunes have very troubling origins. I can't imagine the huge amount of injustices that must have occurred at the hands of these paterollers. Ugh.

A little game played by some of my favorite players on here is they'll play a "banjo tune of the week" this week is a tune called John hardy I wanna play while I got time #iwannaplayto #johnhardy #lonewolfomb #banjototw #banjo #roundpeak #banjogeek #fretlessbanjo

Here's my contribution to #banjototw. John Hardy, based off of Mike Seeger's recording, probably one of my favorite interpretations. Let it twang. #banjo #banjer #mikeseeger #johnhardy #dropthumbsnotbombs #folkmusic

Between my son hitting me while playing and then trying to knock the camera over, here's my feeble attempt at the banjo tune of the week, #johnhardy. I hadn't played my 3 string banjo in a long while so I figured I'd give it a go. Not sure what it was tuned to, but here it is....
(This is also my first go at the banjo tune of the week, so I don't really know what I'm doing, hahah)

The banjo tune of the week is "John Hardy" chosen by @cumberland_banjos , playing it on my pony banjer. @dustyleeelmer @jdwilkes @d.cassells @cwdeanbanjos @banjopete @sirjugsalot and everyone else! #btotw #squirrelbanjo #banjototw #banjotuneoftheweek #johnhardy #tennesseebanjo #ponybanjo

Where are all the #banjototw folks? This week, @cumberland_banjos has selected "John Hardy." There's an awesome video of Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson, and a few others having a blast with this one on YouTube. Cool tune and awesome playing, Cam!

#banjototw time. This week we're doing John Hardy. I'm playing Tommy Jarrell's version here. #banjo #oldtimebanjo #clawhammerbanjo @zacpelo @jdwilkes @cwdeanbanjos @seedersinstruments @d.cassells @dustyleeelmer @squirrelbanjo @banjopete etc. etc.

Old Christmas morning learned from Dwight Diller was the #banjototw a while ago. Picking it for our late sweet baby james, who I'll pick a banjo with when sunshine bursts these prisons of clay

#banjototw is @jdwilkes' call this week, and he chose "Cattle in the Cane." I was going to try his arrangement, but @cumberland_banjos already laid that down! Here's a version I found on YouTube that I learned despite the performer's choice to call himself "Banjovi..."

This weeks #banjototw is the fantastic Cattle in the Cane. Since I don't know it and don't have time to learn it, I thought I'd plug the eponymous album by @jdwilkes and #charliestamper! Not sure if it is still in print but if so, do yourself a favor and buy it! So much good music and even a banjo joke that I use from time to time. #banjo #clawhammerbanjo #dropthumbsnotbombs #oldtimemusic #vinyl #heavyrotation
