This tune is attributed to Howdy Forester. I have heard it by Ned Luberecki and this is an almost transcription of his piece. I have simplified a few of the lines because I can't play like him.

I am told that this tune (a medley) origninated with Eck Robertson. anyone know any other history. I would love to know it and would love to hear a fiddle version of it.

Nice picking, Sal. I originally heard this tune under the title of Brilliancy Medley, and I think it was supposed to be a combination of Drunken Billy Goat, Wake Up Susan, and maybe some other tunes. Robertson recorded it in 1930. You can hear a snippet of Robertson's recording at If this is the easy version, I'd hate to try and play the hard version!

Thank you Rick. I have a couple more in the pipeline. But, recording myself is not my favorite thing. I am not very good at wart removal.
