We find this Melvin Wine fiddle tune irresistible. A pal of mine recorded Jimmy Triplett playing it at a workshop and brought it to our attention. I'm playing my 1927 Gibson resonator banjo capoed up two frets. It's the only banjo I've ever owned that sounds as good capoed as without one.

A great job of picking on this great tune. I have a 1926 Gibson ball-bearing that I love to play, and it is just quiet enough (compared to a regular Mastertone) that I can usually get away with it at an old time jam, where Gibson players are usually shunned. My 1928 archtop I have to leave in the closet.
