I spent the day studying the tune, "Whiskey Before Breakfast". A standard traditional song that has long been a favorite of mine. I've been switching back and forth between using finger-picks, bare fingers, and flat-picks. This weekend, I worked on my cross-picking. There are a lot of great versions of this tune, but my favorite comes from Norman Blake. You can view it on YouTube, as an extract from his instructional DVD, which is great to have, if only for the close-up opportunity to see this master play. The accompanying tab is alright, but not exactly what Norman is playing most of the time, but don't be put off by that aspect, as the tab is good for learning the tune.
Two other sources of the tune, more in a tutorial setting are available from Banjo Ben Clark's site, and another from Adam Schlenker on YouTube. Both are good instructional sites, and pretty reasonable on their available downloads. Both are also well represented on YouTube, so take a look for either or both, if you are looking for help.
I thought, I had the tune "in-hand", so I setup to record it. After about 12 takes, I realized the tune was not within my grasp yet. Still got some work to do on the B section, and ending. Just couldn't nail it cleanly. You know, though, it's alright, the recording session was a great learning session too. Sometimes you gotta hear yourself play to understand where you need the most help.
I really admire folks who can play fiddle tunes on the guitar. I'm finding just how much work it is to play them well.
