Kentucky fiddler Jim Bowles heard the tune from an old colored fiddler who played it for dances and it's said that the tune may pre-date Civil War days. It has an unusual pattern of AABBBBB. The B part has variations, however, with three different parts as I heard it played. I'm playing this on a short scale Doc's Banjo tuned to a double C tuning. I get a happy Christmas Eve feeling from it and look forward to that day soon this year.

I like this tune Janet and it sounds nice on that short scale.

A fun sounding tune with a spirited gate. Of course, “Janet-ized” for our listening pleasure. The best compliment I could give on this Christmas Eve eve, would be that I am certain I could pick out your playing 100% of the time in a blind listening test. Merry Christmas my friend.
