Does anyone know where a transcription of this tune can be had? I've been dissecting it for years it seems and still quibbling over the details.

I've also slowed it down to a crawl and some of those notes are just too "syrupy" to decipher.

Thanks in advance either way.

What version of the song are you referencing? It's a song, not really a tune. It has a lot of fills and a fiddle break. I don't recall a Kenny Baker version off hand but he likely played it with Bill.

If you can find a copy, there is a transcription of "Muleskinner Blues" in Kenny Baker Fiddle, Oak Publications, by David Brody.

That rang a bell. I looked and found I had a scan of that tune in my files. Send me a private email and I'll send you a copy.

It's also in the yellow-cover Stacy Phillips/Kenny Kosek book, Bluegrass Fiddle Styles.

Thanks, guys. I think I've got the first opening worked out. This is the one I'm working from.
