This is a pretty nice version of Arkansas Traveler from West Virginia fiddler Clark Kessinger. He mostly played the A part low, except for the fourth time through the tune. He played two extra repetitions of the A part that time, one of which was high. There are a few passages where you will have to hold a D on the fourth string while playing melody on the third string. Look out for the occasional accidental.
