Oldtime fiddler Craig Judelman teaches the classic Sourwood Mountain, similar to versions by Clark Kessinger, Ernie Carpenter and Albert Hash, but one he’s made his own. It’s a fun tune to jam out on and even learn a few of the lyrics. This is is played in cross A tuning: AEAE. Great for beginners to get a simple version down or for more advanced players to dig into the variations.
Ben Smith on backup guitar.
