Snake Chapman's Tune

This tune is supposedly the legendary fiddler Owen "Snake" Chapman's (1909-2002) version of a Bob Will's tune called Home With the Girls in the Morning. I have heard it said that Chapman himself denied ever playing the tune. It is usally played on fiddle in an open D tuning (ADad). This recording is from an internet jam session with my fiddling pals John Maguire and John Reddick, from April, 2022. We are using a system called Jackstreamer, which reduces latency to a fraction of a second, so that you can play together in what is essentially real time. I am three finger picking my semi-fretless 1928 Vega Tubaphone, in open D tuning (aDF#AD).
