Description: This one’s a bit more challenging, but well worth the effort. I personally love the whole Cajun “thang” (see Side Notes below). I honestly do NOT hear this tune much at Pickin’ Parties and jams, but it is pretty cool, and the chords are easy enough to teach others on the spot to back you up. I first learned this one directly from famed fiddler Jay Ungar (composer of Ashokian Farewell and other tunes). Technically it is not too difficult, but does require knowledge of low 2 finger on the E string. The “B section” is kind of a cool jumble of only 3 notes twisting around to a rhythm. My private students have had some trouble with this, but are greatly helped if they listen to the recordings often, and play along as soon as they are ready.
