Dry and Dusty is a Missouri/Arkansas fiddle tune that comes from the repertoire of twin brothers Apsie (1876-1964) and Abbie Morrison (1876-1965), both fiddlers from Searcy County, Arkansas. This is another recording from one of my jams with Don Couchie up on Geezer Hill. Don is fiddling, I am three finger picking my semi-fretless Tubaphone in open D tuning.

The Dons never disappoint when they pick together.

Yeah, Peter, Don and I made the recording while jamming a couple of weeks ago at the Appalachian String Band Festival at Clifftop, WV.

I still didn't try that up the neck B part variation...

I just learned this one, from you, picking up a lot of tricky nuances from Don's fiddling that will be a long time in getting just so. Thanks!
