Little Whiskey (and Clifftop!)
"Little Whiskey," a midwestern fiddle tune, is currently the tune of the week over at banjo hangout; this tune comes up every once in a while in the local jam and I just love it! Its pretty neat that there is still a strong regionality to old time - I'd never heard this tune until I moved to Michigan!
I decided to record my own version on the Buckeye (audio will have to suffice as I'm not presentable enough for video this week):
I'm still getting used to the Buckeye after the "tone-ring-addition" surgery, and I must admit that I think my pull-offs sound a little weak in there. Perhaps a lighter 3rd string is in order? I keep switching between a 0.015 (currently on there - sounds good tuned to G but its a little stiff on the left hand when tuned up to A...hence the weak pull offs) and a 0.014 (just feels a little "rubber-band-like" tuned down to G). The 25" scale is really great for left hand work but has proved to be a bit of a conundrum for string choice - don't suppose anyone knows where I can get a 0.0145?
Anyways, hope you enjoy the tune anyhow - I'll try and get a tab up at some point!
In addition, I'm posting a day early because I leave for my first venture to Clifftop tomorrow - amazingly I never made the short trip from VA but I'm willing to do the long-haul from MI. Should be an amazing week and I'll definitely post a first-timer's review when I return.
