Bob White from Huntsville, Ala., is a rocket scientist and also one of my favorite fiddle players. He's a virtual walking library of tunes and always generous in sharing his knowledge. Strangely enough, at this past Breakin' Up Winter was the first time he and I sat down to record some tunes together. We're sitting outside in March in shirtsleeve weather near Lebanon, Tenn.

Wayne, this sounds really fine. I like the pace you guys take through this tune, more like a withdrawal than a retreat! This pace lets the contours of the tune really stand out and your playing is full but very open. Well done, Ted.

One of my all time old time favourite (favorite) tunes.  Fiddle and working excellently together.

Thanks, fellas, believe it or not, that was the first time that Bob and I ever played that tune together. I thought we did pretty good.

Very nice playing there, Fretless, with one of my high favorite live fiddlers; wonderful treatment of a tune I surely love.
