This interesting tune has all the features that old time fiddlers love (or will give them fits). It's crooked, it has lots of syncopation, and it changes keys! Not content to be a standard A&D tune, it switches from A mixolydian to D mixolydian. Even if you learn well from notation, make sure to listen to the recordings before attempting this one.

This tune has no comments.
