Very interesting. The Green Corn I have heard is played in D and doesn't resemble this version. Clark Buehling and Billy Mathews are my source for the version I know. Thanks for sharing you play wonderfully.

There are two tunes associated with Green Corn, that I know of. Harvey's, as posted by Bosco, and Down in the Green Corn (a D tune) by John Hannah (another West Virginian who moved to Ohio, similar to Ward Jarvis). Hannah's tune is on the Field Recorders Collective CD:

Ok I loaded Green Corn in my music. This is one of the 500 fiddle tunes Billy Mathews has recorded. You can find his project on his website It is a great project. I know it has been spoken of here on the Fiddle hangout but I don't think people really understand how great this is. You can support this project and support Billy's effort to pass on American Fiddle tunes by actually purchasing. Billy's only way of living is putting music down and sharing his knowledge in workshops, we all know the salary an old time fiddler makes or not. Anyway my plug and I do not get any monetary gain from this.

Thanks for uploading Bill's Green Corn. It sounds different from John Hannah's, either.
