If you are a beginning fiddler or new to the Waynesboro family of tunes, then I highly recommend starting with Doc Roberts' version.  Do not start with this one.  You have been warned.

Still here?  Take a peek at the transcription and you will see that this version of Waynesboro, from South Carolina fiddler Bo Norris, is crooked, and is even inconsistently crooked.  I don't know if this was intentional, or if Norris' age was showing, or if he just had trouble maintaining rhythm without an accompianist.  Try it, and you can decide.

Nevertheless, there are still some interesting variations in here.

This tune is a member of the following groups:
