Roy Acuff heard me playing "Cumberland Gap" backstage at The Opry one night and said I wasn't playing it right. He took out his fiddle and showed me his way to play it. Kenny Baker's dad also showed me a few things on his fiddle that I like to use when I play it now.

Hi Butch,
You're not playing that right. Next time you're in the UK I'll run through it with you.
?? (Just kidding. Amazing as usual. It's great you share stuff here!)

If people can recognize the tune, it's "right". If they can't, it's "wrong". Those are the only rules I recognize.

I really like that melodic bit you do on the second run-thru!
