Genre: Traditional / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

Played on a mandola-type lute made by Stefan Sobell which I strung to play as a 5-string banjo. Draper's Maggot is an English Country Dance Tune in 3/4 time; first appears in 13th edition of the Playford's Dancing Master (1706). I found Draper's Maggot in Michael Raven's One Thousand English Country Dance Tunes, written in D; I'm playing it in key F using fCFCD tuning. The word "maggot" derives from the Italian magioletta, meaning a plaything or something of slight or small consequence. Hope you enjoy. Please join in the discussion on Sound Off. Thanks for listening. PauL
