I just recorded from the Green Converse 1865 "Hard Times" and "Philadelphia Jig". Philadelphia is played as expected, with that dotted eighth/sixteenth feel in between the triplets. I started to play Hard Times, and did the same thing. Then I realized how I had changed the straight eighths into that timing, when it was not written that way at all. I know we say we can "play them how we feel them", but we must also assume that the person writing them down had some idea what they were doing. I think we can, at least, with Converse, as he is always very specific. Included are the first parts to each tune. Notice the difference. Anybody else get fooled and swing "Hard Times"? Both are great beginner tunes, by the way.

Okay...here they are.
