This beautiful tune is played in open tuning (AEAC# or AEAE), although
I've heard other fiddlers play it in open G also. The Big Hoedown
folks (Bruce Molsky, Rafe Stefanini, and Beverly Smith) play it in G tuning
and it is just gorgeous. Ed Haley's own recording of this. which he
plays without accompaniment, has very good sound quality. It is one of
the most commonly-played Haley tunes at festivals.
