    This is an online fiddle lesson for the old time tune “Gum Tree Canoe” by S. S Steele. This lesson was a special request by BGD member Rteaff. Thanks so much!

    Haha when I was recording this one, it seemed to go on forever. Jennifer asked if it was like the “Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald,” except on a canoe.

    Come to think of it, I think it has a similar sound as the WOTEFitzgerald…lol…fortunately a better ending, I guess.  Very cool, John…that’s how I heard John Hartford do it, except I believe he was playing banjo.  It’s really a nice version for getting some good fiddling in there.  Another one for my evergrowing list, that poor ol lonely list I never have time for anymore.  Hopefully one of these days.  I’m thinking the huge sing8ng range required could pose some challenges…would be great to do with a band…one person sing the verse and another sing the chorus part.  Anyway, great lesson…another great lesson!  Hoping I get some time soon so I can try going through this!
