GUEST,Songster Bob Help ID this fiddle tune (15) RE: Help ID this fiddle tune 23 May 08

It sounds a lot like the tune that's usually called "The Schottisch" among midwestern fiddlers, and "Rustic Dance" in other places. It's exceedingly common, but doesn't seem to have another name that sticks to it.

I tabbed a version of it on banjo, as played by a traditional player, for my Master's Thesis, back in 1978. I'd have to look up the thesis to recall the player's name and locale, and the thesis is in a file cabinet somewhere.
