Here is Martha Campbell on the new Eastman Whyte Laydie banjo. I'm tuned to double C (or there abouts) but most fiddlers - including myself - play it in D. So, tuning up to double D is how I would do it with a fiddler. Buddy Thomas' version is the most well known and he plays a pretty notey version of this tune which I love. I remember talking with Joe Dobbs while doing his radio program "Music From The Mountains" on WVa Public Radio. He was telling me about some young new-old time fiddler asking him why he played so many (ie. too many) notes. His response was priceless, "Because that's the way Buddy Thomas taught it to me!" Like I said, love this tune. Miss Jennifer says it is one of her favorites also! You should hear us together.
