The Possum's Tail is Bare

November 28, 2011

Here's another "D" tune.  This one comes to us from West Virginia and was played by Melvin Wine.  I heard this at this year's installment of Fiddle Hell. Fiddle Hell is a three day learning event designed by Dave and Andy Reiner.  It's been running for a number of years and is a blast to attend.

During the Southern Jam, Fiddle Jammer author Terri Lukačko started playing this tune and we liked it so much we played it twice!

 

A special thank you goes out to Don Borchelt for his help and hard work associated with the different types of media necessary to make this all work!  You can find all kinds of great info on his website dedicated to Old-Time and Bluegrass Fingerpicking.  Thanks, Don!
