Field recording of Alva Green (MP3 available here under an unsanitized title)


This version of Indian Girl was recorded by Kentucky fiddler Alva Green. I prefer Ed Haley’s version of this tune, but Green had a nice cross-tuned setting. I recommend the second or third repetition for learning the tune. I have sanitized the title, as it originally contained an offensive word that has been replaced by “girl.”

Cross-tune to AEAE.
