This tune has an A Major chord in the A part that is outside of the key, which is why it's italicized (Fretboard Toolboxes always italicize notes that are outside of the key).  The B part also has a B7 outside of the key. Pay extra attention to chords and notes outside of the key you're in!

These fiddle tunes have been on a list for me to work on for

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!
