Notes: Québécois tune from the Olympia Quebecois session repertoire. From the repertoire of Andres Savoie. We usually start it with the B part. We shorten the B part to 8 measures by skipping the 7th measure but I included it in the tab. In the mp3 file I recorded myself over our Olympia Q session - the mp3 starts midway through the A part and skips the 7th measure of the B part. The key signature for the A part is G and the B part is D. It is usually played very fast. Here is a youtube of Andres Brunet playing it very fast on the fiddle (this video starts on the B part): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IXtOpSCcBM

Interesting. I'm not even sure if he's still alive, but Andre à Toto is the name of a very well known fiddler in my area, northern New Brunswick. Do you know if the song is named in his honor?
