Lonesome Fiddle Blues – performance

Here’s a simple version of a classic bluegrass tune called “Lonesome Fiddle Blues”. This tune was created by one of my favorite fiddlers, Vassar Clements.

I played it on “The Fiddle That Michael Gave Away” which was handmade by a FiddleHed subscriber. We’re giving it away in a contest. Click here to enter. 

The A part of the tune is in D minor, the B part is in G major (mostly – it gets a little weird at the end when it goes to A major). I generally like to play tunes slower like this…mainly because it feels right. The faster it goes, the less the melody stands out.
