Thread Name: Origins: Buffalo Skinners
Subject: RE: Origins: Buffalo Skinners
I sing this song on my banjo in the key of Bm out of D tuning which is the same as standard G tuning but lowered down with Minstrel Nylgut strings. In the middle I throw in the fiddle tune "Buffalo Hunters" which syncs well as a break with Buffalo Skinners.
It is supposed to be the same melody as "Hills Of Mexico (which I also sing with the banjo) so what's the relation? Which came first?
Early in the BHO history a husband/wife team did a great version where she does the singing but I've never found it since. Where did it go?
