    Default Valley Forge arrangement?

    Any body have an tab arrangement of a simple melody for Valley Forge? I found standard notation at the Old Time Fiddle Tunes site, but my poor attempt at transcribing doesn't sound close. Thanks in advance! Stay healthy!

    Hi Todd,

    That is a great tune that I'm starting to work on. Here is a fine version by Rachel Eddy that I'm going to study:

    I've been playing with a fiddle player that plays this tune very well and really wanted to learn it. I had a version transcribed by Gunnar who is on this forum, can't think of his handle. I attached his version. Here is a rocking version I enjoy. Good luck. I'd love to hear you version when it's worked up.

    Been picking away at this one, and so far it sounds like this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEBqgTq9f54Backing track by Mark at Bluegrass Backing Tracks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAlQtSV-25w&t=0s

    This tune is always an explosive treat when played as a trio of mandolin, guitar, and fiddle. With TWO fiddles playing harmonically, plus walking guitar, and mandolin, it is out of this world. Love that Rachel Eddy version.
