Comments:

According to the Fiddler’s Companion, Miller’s Reel is found in Scotland, Ireland, and all over the United States under a variety of names. Thomasson played it with a lot of energy. The pickup notes may have been cut off in the recording, so I did not transcribe any. Look out for Thomasson's signature triplet runs in the B part, and for double-stops requiring the lower finger to be in a higher position.
