This simple little tune was very frustrating to transcribe. There is only a single part, played as an introduction, backing behind vocals, and as fiddle breaks. It is very repetitive, yet every repetition is slightly different. You can learn the theme from the intro, and then pick up variations from the rest of the transcription.
