Notes: FH can be played in several different keys, but it works well in G, which takes advantage of some standard melodic positions and runs. I took the variation on the A part, starting in measure 9, from Byron Berline's version in his fiddle album with the Dillards. You will note that it anticipates the B part and that its chord structure is slightly different from the standard A part, in measures 1 to 9. Berline and the Dillards played it in D, and I transposed it to G. I hope I captured the feel of his version.
