Lately I've learned a handful of Kenny Baker tunes. Tunes like "Smoky Mountain Rag" in the key of F; "Washington County" in A; "Growlin' Old Man & Growlin' Old Woman" also in A; "Dry and Dusty" in E; "Ashland Breakdown" in the key of C and "Jerusalem Ridge" in A minor.
These are all fairly simple tunes to fiddle and I've had lots of fun with them already.
I'm looking forward to playing them with my musician friends and to learning more of Kenny's tunes.
I've got them all posted here on my practice page:

He sure was smooth. What a great fiddler!
