Comments:

Melvin Wine apparently knew two versions of Yew Piney Mountain, this and one that he attributed to Benny Jarrell.  The recording was a bit of a mess, frankly.  I've tried to clean it up a little in the transcription, attempting to divine Melvin Wine's intent rather than what he actually played in a few places.  When attempting to learn the tune, you might want to ignore the first time through, as it's a bit of an outlier.  Wine played this with a little swing, but not with as much swing as he played the version attributed to Benny Jarrell.  Cross-tune to AEAE.
