Local fiddlers in North Alabama

This is a good tune for beginners. It commemorates General Andrew Jackson's victory over the British at the Battle of New Orleans in 1815. Rather than transcribe the A part as one line with a repeat, I have transcribed it as two lines, with the second line being a variation.
