Notes: Lake Erie is a less common fiddle tune published in Elias Howe’s Musical Companion, The Third Part, 1842. The tune probably falls into the general category of northern tunes, and the playing style is clawhammer with a small amount of double-thumbing on the inside strings. This is my first tab post on this forum so I don't know the routine. Nevertheless, I am including the fiddle tune in parallel so the player who reads notes can actually see what they're aiming for. The arrangement is deliberately sparse and I would add quite a bit more rhythmic banjo noise in actual practice. In a few cases I added a note or two in the arrangement to make the tune more banjo-friendly.
