Learned from the Canote Bothers' new CD "Dogs in the Dishes". The liner notes for this tune say "J.S. Price's AEAC# tune sounds a lot like Cotton Eyed Joe".

Nice job. J.S. Price was a contemporary of W. S. Collins (Earl/Max/Bill's father) from Oklahoma. This and others were transcribed in Marion Thede's The Fiddle Book. Some nice photos of Mr. Price are included, too. Speaking of Cotton-Eyed Joe's......I've been playing another three part version in the C# tuning that I got from Kerry Blech, who got it from Hawk Hubbard, who supposedly got it from Garry Harrison's Illinois collecting efforts. Kerry added some very unusual chords and kind of 'customized' it. It sounds nothing like any of the other CEJs.

Very nice, and quite interesting!

It sounded so unlike the Cripple Creek I knew that I went to Thede's book to verify it -- an accurate performance indeed!

Nicely done! I don't believe I've ever heard the cross tuned version. Sounds great!
