Old Time Mandolin Music

Miss McLeod's Reel

I learned this version of Miss McLeod’s Reel in the Old Town School of Folk Music’s Old Time Ensemble.

This version of Miss McLeod’s reel seems to be based a recording of of the tune by Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers.  You can find Miss McLeod’s reel on a CD title The Skillet Lickers: Old Time Fiddle Tunes and Songs From North Georgia on County Records CO-3509-CD.

The Skillet Lickers start with my B part below.  They repeat the B part, but do not repeat the A part.  If you listen closely you can hear a mandolin doubling the fiddle part.   Note that the record is not at standard pitch.  Either the recorder or the player was running fast.
