This is a pretty straightforward version of Sally Goodin from West Virginia fiddler Clark Kessinger. The most difficult aspect of his setting is the large number of passages where you have to hold an A on the third string while playing melody on the second string, and similar passages with an E on the second string and melody on the first. Otherwise, there isn’t much of difficulty here. Kessinger played some nice, but not too dramatic, variations.
