This is just where I'm at with this tune. Still working on cleaning up the bowing and getting it faster. It's such a fun little tune, I've wanted to learn it for a while 🙂

I like to look up the history of a tune, and found this interesting info about Liberty at this link: http://americanstrings.blogspo.....rty.html

@Jim Dunleavy Thank you 🙂

@Fiddlerman Thanks 🙂 I'll be happy when I have it up to speed 🙂

 

Since it was pretty out today, I took my little old fiddle out to the park and recorded it again outside. The planes were nice and didn't take off for one of the takes so I had some audio to use.

Way cool.  Are you aware of the many different forms this little ditty takes on?  It's played as a reel, a contra dance, a polka, a two-step, even as a cajun two step.  Here's the song being played cajun style by the late Dewey Balfa.
