78rpm record (entitled A Fiddler's Convention in Georgia)


This is less of a transcription and more of an attempt to impose some order on chaos.  It was a royal pain to transcribe, due to all the hootin' and hollerin' in the background, and Gid playing fast, unaccompianied, and arrhythmically.  This was Gid's entry in A Fiddler's Convention in Georgia, which was a skit simulating a fiddling competition.

This tune around 0:58 in the recording.
