This three part tune shouldn’t be too terribly difficult, just moderately challenging for most fiddlers. Kessinger made frequent use of vibrato in the C part; vibrato notes are marked with a squiggly line to their left. Be careful of the timing and syncopation, and look out for sixteenth notes in the B part.

This tune has no comments.
