For enthusiasts of early banjo
I don't know anything about this tune. I got it from Clarke Buehling's CD "Out of His Gourd".
Here's another one of those "deceptively simple" tunes.
Thanks Steve. it's one of my favorite cds.
Thanks Rick. Right -- do you have any idea where it comes from?
I need to get out more often. Years ago I would hear a lyric fragment on a frequently played Uncle Dave Macon song (Railroading and Gambling). I always thought it was "Take your foot out Sam..." Now I know and where it came from. Sounds great Paul. (Dave)
Thanks Dave. Reading your comment made me realize I have the title wrong. On the CD it is: "Take Your Foot Out Sand..." When I was typing it out, i wrote "out of the sand"...
It's found in J.H. Jennings' Practical Banjo School, 1902, where it is called "Buck Dance"
Ah! Thanks Mark.
Nice playing! Dr. Humphrey Bate and His Possum Hunters did a version of this, it takes to about 20 seconds in to really pick up the melody.
There is an earlier recorded version by MacLaughlin's Melody Makers that is much more in line with this version I have on tape somewhere in a box, but I couldn't find the audio on the web.
