Flying Indian

The tune for the day is:


A fiddling friend introduced this tune to me, and I fell absolutely in love with it. There is just something about how it lays on the mandolin that makes it downright fun to play! Now, it works well on the guitar as well, so it’ll be great fun for you to learn it, too.:) It is an old-time tune from southern Virginia, as far as my research discovered.

Here is the PDF with guitar TAB and notation – Flying Indian – Gtr TAB

There were few videos that I found of this tune, but here is a fiddle player who is playing a slightly embellished version.

As always, there’s no time like the present to grab your guitar and give it a go!
