This is a marvelous version of Grey Eagle from Missouri fiddler Cyril Stinnett. He played it in the key of C, rather than in the more common key of A. Watch out for broken rhythm, and a slide up to a high C in the B part. Stinnett played the tune three times through in the recording; I recommend the second or third times for learning the tune. I really like this version.
