Melvin Wine's Cold Frosty Morning album

I'm calling this a hornpipe because Wine played it with a lot of broken rhythm. I have two sources for this tune, one on the Cold Frosty Morning album (from which I did the transcription) and one from the Augusta Heritage Center's DVD and CD combo "One More Time": The Life and Music of Melvin Wine. On Cold Frosty Morning, he played it as in the transcription (with the higher, minor part first and the lower, major part second). On One More Time, he played it the other way around.

This tune has no comments.
