[gDGBD tuning]

This is a tune I learned from a recording of the late/great Lyman Enloe, a fiddler from the central part Missouri. If you’ve never heard his album “Fiddle Tunes I Recall“, then shame on you!!! While you wait for his CD to arrive in the mail, go HERE to learn more about the the man. As for the tune, a few other folks have recorded it as well (Lynn “Chirps” Smith, Carthy Sisco, Carol Gaskins), but for the most part it’s relatively obscure.

About the tab:

Beings that it is a fiddle tune from Missouri, it’s pretty notey.  I tried to simplify it in my arrangement, but it still involves plenty of hammer-ons, pull-offs, and a couple picking patterns that may pose a bit of a challenge on the first go.  All that said, I think it’s a fun tune once it’s in the fingers.
