My fiddle wants to squeak today...I don't, but the fiddle does...lol. Anyway, here's Happy Hollow (some of us know it as a holler...whichever you wanna call it).

Nice job Peggy. Raising er' up a notch and adding some groundhog shuffle gives the tune more bounce.

Would that be Calico tuning but one whole note lower?

John, yes...sorry I guess I forgot to say it...GDGB...one step lower than the usual AEAC#...just a notch lower Calico. I usually don't like to play as high as A, because I think lower is just more mellow, but honestly, when I tuned for this one, my fiddle was already in GDGD, so out of nothing more than laziness...I chose to just tune one string in order to play this one...lol.

I like that, especially if I were to play this in a jam.  As you say, it's much easier, and faster, to re-tune just one string.

Nice job Peggy! I play it in reg. calico, but love the sound of "calico".
