A really nice interpretation of the old time fiddle tune. A bit more up beat and melodic then the usual slow dirge. Traditionally fiddle players have a low  tuning called Bonaparte just for this tune. ddad. Although it sounds familiar to us dulcimer players it's very different on the fiddle. Thanks...Robert

Your light touch and the way you phrase the tune has me hearing this in a whole new way-- it's wonderful, Val.

So beautiful, I bet it's finger dancing rather than noter to get that sweet sound.
