Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 9/18/15, this version comes from the Roan Mountain Hilltoppers. Two descriptions of rattletrap: (1) it was a noisemaker to announce when a tinkerer was coming by to sell his wares; (2) it described the old vehicle the Roan Mountain Hilltoppers used when traveling to perform. The kicker on this tune is the one note (an F) that takes you by surprise in the B part. It must be fun to perform in jams when this part comes up -- everybody seems to sway and smile a bit.
