Local fiddlers in North Alabama.

This is a cool tune I learned from some of my fiddler friends back in Alabama. It makes a good set with Abe's Retreat. I usually play Booth Shot Lincoln first, followed by Abe's Retreat. Both tunes are most easily played cross-tuned to AEAE, but can also be played in GDAE.

Look out for the syncopation in this one.

Love this tune. A must for an Old Time fiddler and or clawhammer banjo player.
