a long time, so I put these here for me, and all of you who
are working on the same thing. Good luck building speed!

This tune, like these other fiddle tunes, has a lot of room left to your personal interpretation. Find a couple versions of this song that you like, and then think strongly about investing in some "slow-down" software like the Amazing Slow Downer. I literally could not have figured out any of these tunes without a slow-down program like that!
