Subject: RE: Name Some Fiddle Tunes
Commander Crabbe, yes, that could be "Pigeon on the Gate".

Or it could be "Geese in the Bog", "Ducks on the Pond", "Ducks on the Millpond", "Gander in the Pratie Hole", "Chuck in the Bush", "Wild Hog in the Woods", "Yearlings in the Canebrake", "Old Gray Cat on a Tennessee Farm", or "Possum up a Gum Stump".

Just pick an animal, a preposition, and a rural landscape feature and you've got a ready-made name for a fiddle tune.

I have a few untitled pieces of my own floating around, and plenty of personally experienced animal related incidents to draw titles from. Maybe I'll call one of them "Whitetails in the Sweet 'Tater Patch", "Coons in the Cat Dish", or "Turkey Buzzards in the Big Pine Tree".
