Here is a nice video of Hunter Robinson playing "Candy Girl," from his instructional DVD:
This tune can be a great platform for a "trance jam" and who does that better than the Horse Flies? Here's a CD I never even knew existed where they do a funky "Candy Girl"...the recognizable melody doesn't even start until about 2 minutes in. Here is the album on Spotify.
This is one of those "takes a minute to learn, takes a lifetime to master" tunes. Would love to hear what others come up with. I will try to record and post a video of myself playing it over the next few days.

The above was originally intended to be a much longer and more thoughtful post, but I submitted it & something went wrong and it didn't post. I was unable to retrieve the lost post. If I have the time later I will try to add back some of my thoughts about this wonderful tune.
John, your choice is a fun one to play, and I agree, it will take a lifetime to master like the masters portrayed above. It's impressive that Uncle Bunt Stephens won the famous 1926 fiddle contest sponsored by Henry Ford to help sell his automobile.
