Get Up in the Morning

Recording Date: 
Tuesday, March 6, 2007

My first tune from Bob Flesher's "Minstrel Banjo Stroke Style" tutor. Based on Briggs 1855. The original verses are fairly embarrasing, so I have taken the first one, added one that I knew from my youth from a Pete Seeger childrens record, and a third from Dan Gellert's wonderful version of "Jim Crack Corn". For some unknown reason I sing "Wake up in the morning" instead of "get up".

Banjo Style: 
Home-made Tackhead banjo
