Going Down to Georgia O

WV fiddler Melvin Wine. He plays in the neighborhood of D. He starts every phrase down-bow and ends every phrase up-bow. He uses longbow for melody but fast saw & shuffle for the endings. 

Key of D. Two parts. The tune is also called "Gunboat." 

For students...

The first part is longer but both parts end the same way. The first melody note, F#, comes with syncopated flicks of other notes; this is hard to get right so you can just play F# at first. You can think of this as having a two-note pickup before each phrase, with emphasis on each measure's first note.

Fiddle fingers. High part. Play it 2x.
