For enthusiasts of early banjo
This is a tune I have rewritten from "Get Up in the Morning". It's played on my Lady Stewart from 1898 as that is a better key to sing this than my Hartel banjo.
I also found it listed as Get up in the morning. But Wake Up in de Mornin works just as well.
Whatever it is it sure does make good listenin'!!
I was watching Tim's video which is listed Get Up in the Morning. I understand Wake Up in de Mornin must be the original.
It's also a very close relative of "Bluetail Fly", at least the melody part.
It is! I kept having to not go to that tune when playing!
beautiful ! I wouldnt mind having a fretted banjo ,, if I had one that sounds sweet like you make that one sing. kudos again.
Hey Rhiannon, that sounds so pretty. I just won on ebay a 1920 Stella tenor. Also picked up a 1930 Concertone 5 string, both which I am going to commence restoring, I want to set the Concertone for Classical Style. Did you but nylgut strings on your lady Stewart, it has that sound. Good stuff!
Wow... just caught the lyrics...I like the story. well done!.
