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

I worked this up today for this weeks Old Time Tune of the Week. This comes form Pikeville, Kentucky fiddler Owne "Snake" Chapman. I am picking three finger style on my 1928 semi-fretless Vega Tubaphone, tuned in open D (aDF#AD). That's a MIDI practice track of my own making playing in the background.

Those swerving slides are like the hornet flying madly around. No stinging yet, but lots of buzzing. I like your unique approach to the tune, Don.
