This is a really nice version of Walk Along John. There many jazzy slides from B-flat to B-natural. The Fiddler’s Companion notes that some people find similarities between Walk Along John and Stoney Point. I can hear why some would say that, but I do not currently consider Walk Along John to be in the Stoney Point tune family.
