    A lesson for a great old hymn.  This lesson has a beginner version and also an intermediate break as played by Stuart Duncan on Doc Watson’s On Praying Ground CD.

    Beautiful, John. I was hoping you would do this one sometime. It is one of my favorites. Dan

    Thanks Dan. My Skype student requests hymns, so I am building a good repertoire. I’ll be uploading the lessons here as time allows!

    Funny, I thought I knew a lot of those old Gospel hymns, but I’ve never heard this one. What fun! I love hearing new (old) songs 🙂

    Kaeleigh, there are so many good old songs.  This happens to be one I grew up with. My older sister used to sing “Cheer up my brother” tease me when I was having a bad day. 🙂 I love the Doc Watson version of this song.

    How nice it is to find such nice music in E :O) Big smiles .
    Once again , John , you fill my schedule with flavor and necessary elements of le fiddle . I was looking for something to help me out with the country music jamms in E, they like that key a lot , and me, it makes me shy not knowing any phrases or positions, so, with this song , I think its all getting under control :O)
    I was wondering also, since the song is in E, why the sheet music is tabbed in A? Is it just me? And also, maybe it s just me again, I was looking into Baton ROUGE mp3s in E and it is funky error message, thought you would want to know :O)

    Hi Gu, for some reason the time signature was A even though the song was in E. I changed it, and it corrected some of the flats and sharps in the sheet music. However, I don’t think the tabs changed any.

    For some reason, the “Callin’ Baton Rouge’ tracks were fine on the lesson page, but were throwing an error on the ‘Jam Track’ page. That should be fixed now. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

    That evocative, haunting sound on the fiddle is so well suited to this  mournful old hymn.

    Thank you! This is a mournful hymn; it speaks right to a hurting soul. I’ve found myself singing this one a lot in the past week.

    Thanks.  I remember the very first time I heard this song.  Some 54 years ago.  Still a favorite of mine.
