Notes: At the end of the 80's I used to ‘sit in’ with Fishbach and Kirby which became 29 Strings at Durty Nellies in Palatine IL. They asked me to learn the fiddle brake to this song. I half speeded it on a Tandberg Tape recorder and got it note for note. In the song John Denver's telling you he is just a simple country bumpkin but there is an extra beat in measures 6 and 14. Once you get the basic tune down you will want to double stop on the open A or E string, which ever is not being used to play the melody line.

Sooo glad you did this!!!! Have you by chance written down any other fiddle parts for John Denver songs?

To get the books in the form of pdf is as essential as it will provide more details there. On the other hand, pay someone to do assignment that is going to present the different perspectives there.
