Melvin Wine played this in the AEAC# tuning. The first time I heard this version, I thought it was terribly wrong. It grew on me as I transcribed it, but I still like Bobby Kerns' version much better. Interestingly, Wine did not play the well-known pizzicato variation of what I always play as the A part (he plays that part as a C part). The only pizzicato he did was in the the introduction.
