    That’s beautiful playing and a great variation. Lots to learn from there.

    I also first heard the tune on Bill Keith’s “Something Auld, Something Newgrass” album. When I asked Bill about the the tune, he said he learned it from a Tommy Jackson LP of fiddle tunes for square dancing.

    Great stuff! I'll have to watch that speed video.
    It's a really interesting tune, and (of course) very well played. Love the tone.
