Learned this tune this morning. I have been playing for five months now. I know I ain't no Bruce Molsky, but hey... I'm happy with it.

That's really impressive for just five months of playing. Keep up the good work.

sounds great. What key are you playing this tune in?

Thanks for the nice comments and encouragement. I tuned the fiddle to ADAE for this tune. Just tune the G string up to A and you are all set. It's great for droning off of when you are on the low strings.

Would you know where I could find tab or sheet music for this tune?

Hey Slimman,

I found some sheet music for Cumberland Gap in the key of D here:

I don't know if it is correct or not. I just did a Google search and came up with this. I have found that most written music for Cumberland Gap seems to be in the key of G. My personal preference is to play it in the key of D either on fiddle or banjo probably because that is the way learned it and I have always played it in D.
