Down the Road on a guitar and on a lap dulcimer played in noter/drone style
Hey, FOTMDers, y'all join along!I first learned this tune from Don Pedi at his spring retreat in NC. (His source for the tune was Welzie Cresawn from Burnsville NC, born in 1903. Don plays this out of DGd. Fellow attendee Paul Tantillo-- thanks, Paul!-- and I played this tune together and that further stuck it in my mind. ) Here, I'm tuned to DGG.Mark learned "Down the Road" from The Doc Watson Family Smithsonian/Folkways recording. According to the liner notes, Doc learned this song from his father, General Dixon Watson, and the tune is the same as that for "Ida Red".
