Devil in the Hay Stack

Today’s tune is


Such an odd name, and I have not found out if there is a reason for this title or not. I did find, however, lots of information about why the devil seems to be associated with fiddle/violin music. Here is a link, for those interested, that gives a fairly concise version of the different sites that I read.

Personally, I believe that music is a gift from God, and so I can enjoy playing it to the fullest! 🙂

Here is the guitar TAB and notation – Devil in the Hay Stack – Gtr TAB

Of course, like most of the tunes, in trying to find a video, there are many variations on the tune that I’ve notated, so here is a video that is very close to this version. It seems as if this is specified as the Illinois tune, or version. There is also a link to a practice video up at the top menu “Fiddle Tunes….”. 🙂

As usual, there is no time like the present to grab your guitar and try this one out! You’ll be glad that you did! 🙂
