Hob Dye

Louise Steinway (fiddle), Steve Roy (manolin), Isaac Callendar (guitar).

Key of G. Simple square tune with two parts. The start and end of the first part are the same, which can confuse people trying to learn it by ear. A YouTube comment says the tune is named after a Texas fiddler named Hobson Dye. Some people spell it Hobb Dye.
