I first learned this tune from a young fiddler who was trying out fiddles at the House of Musical Traditions in Takoma Park Md. I liked the flow of the tune and I really loved the name so I went right home and learned it. There are not a whole lot of tunes that I prefer to play out of an A major open position but this is one. It’s also nice that it has a little cross picking built in to the melody. Some people do capo this one but if you don’t do any tunes out of an A position I think this one is as good as any.
