    Sounds great. I play a much less fancy B part.

    But I find that is true in general, my versions of tunes tend to be less fancy. Like rough carpentry, its all there, but I tend to let the fiddles do the dry wall and molding and trim.

    But for a solo I might work it more like your version.

    You talked me into it. I copied this youtube version best I could. A great C tune that is easy to adapt

    Jeff Sturgeon ... a little bit strange old-time fiddle tune that I like. Have to play it every once in a while so I don't forget it. Here's me and some friends pickin' it at my birthday a couple of years ago.

    Here's a cool one I came across on youtube a few weeks ago: "The possum's tail is bare".
    Interesting challenge trying to emulate the bowing accents on this type of tune.

    Wow! I liked that so much, I did some searching on it. Found the notation for it, which is pretty basic but similar enough to get the gist of the tune. I notice that the written version (supposedly from the same source, Melvin Wine) has the A and B parts reversed from what the fellow in the video is playing. I kinda like his version better than the written version, as the A part of the written tune (which goes down to a C chord in the second measure) just sounds better to my ear as a B part, not an A part.

    Will definitely be adding this to my repertoire. Thanks for posting it!

    My TablEdit skills are not that great, but I transcribed it to a .tef file, then printed it to a .pdf file, if anyone can benefit from it (sorry about the demo version watermark). This is faithful to the written version I found which has the A and B parts reversed from the video above:

    Learning a few new contra dance sets. The first one is Hangman's Reel, with the tune's A, B, C, and D part played as a set in itself.

    A second set includes three rather easy tunes (Seneca Square dance, Flop-eared mule, and Needle Case) that sound good when I focus on adding double-stop oomph to provide counterpoint to the fiddler's melody.

    A bigger challenge is my third new set consisting of two tunes, Woodchopper's Reel and Cuckoo's Nest. These melodies are something special. I already play them well enough in my living room, but they become quite challenging when accelerated to a proper dance speed of 112 bpm. Our band start with CN (three times), then into WR (three times), then back to CN (until the caller ends the dance). I am working hard to keep the melodies intact with all their musical filigree, and without dropping any notes which would make it much easier to play at speed.

    I'm currently in a fiddle-tune slump.

    Haven't worked out any new ones in a few months... (and a few are starting to fall off the radar!)

    Heading to a fest in a couple of weeks, so I need to get back into it!

    Ok, this (Possum's Tail is Bare) is the next one for me.

    Thanks for doing the tab, Tobin!

    I searched the thread and this popped up. Great reference! So, last night the fiddle player called, "Half Past Four." I'm going to learn it. I also see a few others have learned it too.
