I hope this is the right place to ask this question.

I'm reviving Sally Goodin for --- hopefully --- fiddlers conventions in a few months. I can play different variations but honestly, am unsure of the original or traditional version of this song.

I searched this forum but only found tabs for SG, unless I missed them. I don't play from tabs but would appreciate any links to mp3s or youtube that has someone playing the basic, original version.

I've listened to several but am not sure which one is more "original" than another. The judges at local conventions prefer original songs, at least to get started. Some don't recognize a song as the "real thing" if they aren't familiar with the version you are playing.

Anyway, thanks for any suggestions.

This is the earliest recorded version, by Alexander Campbell "Eck" Robertson: youtu.be/yizfP2pfQck
If you can learn to play it like this ... well, at keast you will have learned something!
Good luck!

This young man shows a moderate, acceptable, recognizable version. I like his B part better than what I’ve been doing. I need to learn it myself.
