This is such a great tune. I've been working this over for myself, (after FIRST learning it of the original recording, and researching Rayna Gellert's and Bruce Molsky's versions), and it's just a bottomless well of cool extrapolations.

In the tradition of all fiddlers, I'm gonna "improve" it, though that's more of a joke, right?
Always important to learn the first recorded version thoroughly.
