Key of D – double D tuning – aDADE (or Double C capo 2nd fret)
Dan first got this 3 part version from Thorn Cary at the Mount Airy Fiddlers Convention back about 1985 or so. He played this 3 part version which Dan loves but doesn’t often hear. It made a re-appearance recently on a recording Dan reviewed by Rising Appalachia on their Filthy Dirty South CD. Another recorded source includes The Younger Gang. Modern references for sure, but both worth a listen.
Nothing really tricky here. Just a great tune. Easy fun for the new year!
The written version of this tune can be found as number 14 in Dan's Old Time Favorites for Clawhammer Banjo (MB 30224) – Fiddle/mando version of the book is also available (MB 30225)
