WV fiddler Melvin Wine fiddles Rachel in Mt. Airy NC 1992.
Square tune. Two parts. Key of D. Lots of notes but they are mostly the 3 chord notes of the tune's 3 chords.
- Centralia Campout jam with Howie Meltzer [utoob].
- There is a nice solo fretless banjo rendition in A at Banjo Hangout.
- Fiddle and cello banjo in the basement [utoob]. Lots of notes!
- It is on a Kirk Sutphin CD that is out of print.
- Transcription of Melvin Wine's version [Dr. Fiddle].
- Grace Forrest at Clifftop [utoob].
Texas Quickstep is the same tune.
Not to be confused with...
Rachel and Texas Quickstep are different names for the same tune.
Rachel is also the name for a different tune! For example, Taylor Kimble plays a tune called "Rachel" [mp3 on SlipperyHill and Milliner-Koken book] that sounds like Liberty. Some people say you can tell old time tunes apart by the names, but actually, you cannot.
