Local fiddlers in North Alabama and my own warped mind

I'm calling this a beginner's version. I used to proud of this setting, but I've heard so many other (and frankly, better) versions that I'm just putting this up here for beginners (or anyone else who might find it useful).

Here's a Youtube of Bobby Kerns, a North Alabama fiddler, playing Chinese Breakdown. I like his version better than the one I posted!
