They kick the set off with some old time fiddle music in the form of "Sally Goodin," a showcase for fiddler Byron Berline. By this point the intimate Ash Grove audience is engaged and begin requesting favorites, many of which Monroe accommodates over the course of the set. This not only pleases those making the requests but lends a delightfully spontaneous air to the proceedings. The first honored request is for the fiddle instrumental "Rye Whiskey" which Monroe arranges to showcase his brilliant mandolin work.

The first of the audience members to be invited to join in next is banjo player John McEuen, whom Monroe entices for some high spirited picking on "Charlotte Breakdown. The remainder of the set features the core band running through a set of choice numbers and requests beginning with Berline fronting the group on the classic "Orange Blossom Special" incomplete due to a reel change during the song.

As the clock strikes midnight White and Berline take a brief breather and the remaining members form a classic Sunday morning string quartet for an outstanding rendition of the hymn "I Saw The Light.

Berline leads the way through "Cherokee Waltz" followed by "Walls Of Time," another Doug Green fronted number, leading up to "Listen To The Mockingbird" which concludes with some high velocity instrumentation that will surely dazzle all listeners. Amidst applause and shouts for more, Monroe announces that they're slated to play again the following night before they finish with the closing ditty "Y'All Come" whose refrain, "y'all come see us when you can!

This same year, Monroe initiated the annual Bean Blossom Festival, a bluegrass festival that would continue into the '90s. In he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. He successfully fought off cancer after a diagnosis and later underwent a successful double coronary bypass ten years later.

Following a stroke three years later Monroe passed away on September 9, at the age of Four years before the Bristol Sessions, many consider this to be the first country music recording ever released. Robertson's remarkable variations are still widely imitated by fiddlers today.

Sally Goodin

Eck Robertson's Sally Goodin, Sally Goodin is an almost universal tune, it has been long known throughout the South and West, from Texas to the Georgia Piedmont, and all the way up the Appalachians to at least Pennsylvania. Over the rest of the decade, the golden era of old time music, Fiddlin' John Carson would record it for Vocalion in , Uncle Am Stuart would cut a version for Okeh in , G. Listen to Puckett's bass runs, they reportedly drove his musical companions crazy. Went to the creek and the creek was muddy, So I kissed Sally Goodin' 'til she couldn't stand steady.

If the Depression brought a temporary slowdown in commercial country music, it also saw the the first efforts to use the new recording technology to preserve traditional music by scholars. William H. Stepp's Sally Goodin. Two other cultural icons were recorded playing Sally Goodin in the 40s. Terry's harmonica work in his chuggin cross-harp country blues stlye is remarkably fiddle-like.


Sally Goodin was also in the repertoire of Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, and while he never released it comercially, a recording was made in October, , as part of a pre-recorded radio performance for the Tiffany Music Company of Oakland, California, the famous Tiffany Transcriptions.

Ahhh, Kelso! Like Robertson in , it would be the first recording session of his musical career. He would record two tunes that day; the first was Black Mountain rag, and the second, Sally Goodin. Mercury would release them on a 45rmp record a month later. I realize that Tommy Jackson is not much in favor among old-timey traditionalists today, but to a teenager just starting out on banjo, his energetic, pulsing style of country fiddling was an epiphany.

He died in , at the age of Tommy Jackson's Sally Goodin, By , bluegrass music and bluegrass banjo had begun to make a good sized impression in American country music. Mike Seeger, then just 23 years old and living in Baltimore, would make a collecting trip that year to the North Carolina Piedmont to record and preserve some of the three finger pickers who had preceded or were comtemporaries of Earl Scruggs, and who reflected the earlier tradition of three-finger picking that had inspired him. Listening to these recordings, you come quickly to realize that Earl Scruggs did not make up his style of picking out of whole cloth; the close similarity between his version of Sally Goodin and Jenkins' version is more than remarkable.

I suspect that when you listen to Junie and Snuffy, you are getting an inkling of what the original legendary North Carolina three-finger stylists, Smith Hammett and Rex Brooks, probably sounded like. I have included a tab of Snuffy's three-finger arrangement. Isham Monday's Sally Goodin, J.

Over the years I've worked up at least a half dozen different versions of this tune. My first attempt was a simple Keith-style melodic rendition. Accurate, but no energy. Then came a subtly "chromaticized" version, with a few Bobby Thompson inspired flatted thirds. The version from my ragtime period was heavy with syncopation and staccato Reno type single string notes. In my swing period, I had a version which inserted some of the notes from the standard Texas sock guitar progression- that was kind of interesting, although I could never play it fast enough.

Finally, I brought my Sally Goodin' back home to the feel of the old-time tune that, after forty some years, still drifts through my daydreams. Many of the popular Appalachian fiddle tunes like Sally Goodin can be easily distilled into a simple melody - they can be hummed, in essence. The extra melody notes are essentially embellishments, suggested as much by patterns of the bowstroke and the structure of the fiddle tuning, as by pure melodic invention.

Quite a few of these are among the so-called "play party songs," tunes which in the rural South of several generations ago would be sung by proper church-going young folks at social gatherings. The songs supplanted the fiddle, which was shunned as the devil's instrument, and provided musical accompaniment to an activity which to an outsider looked a lot like dancing, but wasn't, because that, too, was sinful. So I went back to the simple melody of Sally Goodin, and the basic right hand rolls I first learned when I started out picking banjo.

If anyone is interested, I have a tab posted at my website. The tab has guitar, fiddle, and bass tracks, as well as banjo, so you can also use the MIDI playback as a backing track in order to practice your own arrangement, shutting off the banjo track if it distracts you. If you go through the TEF file, you can also adjust the tempo to suit you. For those of you who would like to try the tune, Mike Iverson has a nice looking intermediate clawhammer tab posted on his website to get you going. BHO member Janalov has a neat two finger, thumb lead version that is true to the flavor of the old time finger pickers.

As you can see, I have not included any versions from BHO members, except one. I thought I would let you all have the fun of posting your own. They are all good 'uns. I had a piece of pie, and I had a piece of pudding, I gave it all away, to see Sally Goodin. Don, perhaps a new high-water point for TOTW posts. Just terrific. I love the way you traced out the history of this tune. Going through the archives, I was surprised it hadn't been done before. Now, I am very happy I didn't choose it because my effort wouldn't not have been anywhere near as thorough and well done.

Newport Folk Festival (Newport, RI), 07/27/1968

A wonderful TOTW write-up. You did all that and more. Thanks for all the research and work. Thanks, all, for the nice comments. Wow, Lew, I really love that rapping thump you get on your Sally, you nail the spirit of the thing perfectly. Great up the neck break, too. Great job, Don. I listened to all the links above and all put a smile on my face the Bob Wills was fun and unexpected.
