FiddlerPaul71 Fun to listen to your version. I learned the tune from Bruce Molsky at an Old Town School workshop in Chicago years ago and JUST this week, it came to mind as I was noodling on the porch. :)

Nicely done. I really like the balance of instruments in this video -- and I like the fiddling, too!

Hi Paul,

Fine playing of a great old tune!

I'm used to hearing it in A, but F seems nice and relaxed :-).
