Notes: My arrangement of this popular fiddle tune. Influenced by several sources. I don't include fingering because in most case it's obvious and I assume anyone who plays melodics has their preferred ways of getting at the basic formations that come up in this arrangement. I will note that there's some use of middle finger on 2nd string, usually at the top end of a forward roll. In measure 19, for the 3-note backward roll starting on 2nd string I actually use my index finger for both 2nd and 3rd strings. It's non-conventional, but it works for me, especially at the moderate tempo of this tune. You're free to use middle on 2nd for a true 3-finger backward roll, as Tony Trischka and Bela Fleck would. Thank you to Hangout member Sam Parks for letting me use the guitar, mandolin and bass tracks from his TablEdit file. Saved me a lot of time.
