Thamks. I just figured that out about an hour ago. I also play Bonaparte's Retreat in that tuning. Do you play any other ddad tunes?

Bonaparte's Retreat (W.H. Stepp & Luther Strong)
Dry and Dusty (Morrison Twin Brothers String Band)
Jack of Diamonds
Midnight on the Water (Benny Thomasson)

Nice list. I currently play Dry and Dusty, Midnight on the water and Coleman's in standard. From now on I'm going to go to DDAD for sure! Thanks!

One of my favorites is Marcus Martin's "Wounded Hoosier".

Several Midwest players (Cyril Stinnett & Garry Harrison come to mind as particularly nice versions) played it in standard. Uncle Dick Hutchison and Bob Rogers/Tom Sauber played it in standard but in the Key of E. Eck Robertson (Famous Cowboy Fiddler on County Records) played a number of tunes that were very fine and; as Judy pointed out, Marcus Martin had a bunch, too. I'm extremely fond of his Boatsman in DDAD.

Garry Harrison's Yell in the Shoats is at the top of my list, too.

The Marcus Martin Boatsman is a completely different tune, it's not the WV Boatsman that I believe you're talking about. In the above post, I was talking about Dry and Dusty
that was played in standard tuning by Midwest fiddlers. I couldn't edit it after I noticed that omission. Sorry for that confusion.
