This was one of the first dozen or so tunes i learned when I started bluegrass fiddle and it's fallen off into the rusty dusty pile. So I thought I'd re-work it up so I could play it at jams, here's the current status of it.

Awesome. That was great, @fiddlinsteudel. Another great performance from you.

That is one of my favorite tunes, so lovely. Will try to learn it some day.

I try to download your playing for reference.

Thank you for sharing.

I agree! That was great. I love Jerusalem Ridge...might be my favorite fiddle/mando tune. It's on my to-learn list but way down the road.

Four thumbs up!

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

Thanks guys! I have a love hate relationship with it. On one hand it's a fun song to play, but on the other hand sometimes when you get into a big jam it's such a long song, it goes on forever ...

Really nice bow work. Good sounding song.
