This is one of the first fiddle tunes I learned to play on banjo. I made this recording fifty years ago at the Union Grove festival on the Van Hoy Farm in Union Grove, North Carolina, using a little cassette recorder I had with me. If I remember correctly, I was in open G tuning using C positions, but capoed on the 2nd fret. These days, i play it in open D tuning.
