I'm on fiddle, with Pete Anick on guitar, recorded 19 years ago. Pretty close to Eck Robertson's version from 1922 (two parts in Bb and one in Gm), but it's a tough one to play well! Some fiddlers regularize the tune by omitting measure 4 of the 9-measure C part. Done Gone has been credited to Matt Brown, a Texas Panhandle fiddler stranded outside Amarillo and ignored by a car that zoomed by him.

Thanks for uploading this.  Nice playing - as usual... ;-)

I guess I'm one of those fiddlers that's been playing an 8 measure C part.  I like the 9 measure version though and might pick it up.

Have you ever listened to Rutland's 6 part version?  If so, what do you think of it?

Very nice playing, Dave. That A part sounds really similar to Charleston #1... ( the version I'm thinking of is on Rayna Gellert's Ways of the World CD)

Nice playing,

I think Charleston #1 is just an "alternate" name for "Done Gone" when "Done Gone" is played in C rather than Bb.
