This transcription is of both the fiddle and mandolin parts of the recording. The fiddle played the lead in the intro and breaks, and the mandolin played behind vocals and whistling. (The mandolin also played behind the fiddle while the fiddle was playing lead, but at those times it basically played the same thing it played behind the vocal chorus.)   Look out for the timing in this one, as two extra beats show up here and there. In the mandolin portions of the transcription, the squiggly lines next to long notes indicate that note should be played as tremolo.
