Red Skin Gal is actually Moore’s cover of Eck Robertson’s marvelous rag There's a Brown Skin Girl Down the Road Somewhere. Moore’s version is no less marvelous than Robertson’s, though it is probably more difficult. It goes up to a high D in the A part, and has double-stops requiring the finger on the lower string to be in second position.
