Comments:

Hollow Poplar was popularized by Fiddlin’ Arthur Smith, and according to the Fiddler’s Companion, was the first tune he played on the Grand Old Opry. Moore plays a nice version of it, with the A part a little different each time through. Look out for accidentals and the pizzicato notes in the ending.


This tune is a member of the following groups:

Texas Fiddle
