Recording of Gary Lee Moore released on the album Uncle Pig


Oklahoma fiddler Gary Lee Moore plays a fantastic jazzy version of Forked Deer. There are many slow triplets, including some with a dotted quarter note and an eighth note for the second and third notes, respectively. To play these strange beasts, just hold the second note of the slow triplet a little longer and then play the third note more quickly. The B part the second time through goes up a high D; you will probably need to play those high passages in third position.

This tune is a member of the following groups:

Forked Deer
