I learned this old-time fiddle tune from Steve Hickman who is a fabulous fiddler and master of “hambone”. Steve’s hambone is guaranteed to make you laugh: Steve Hickman hambone
I recorded this tune with The Ken & Brad Kolodner Quartet: Turkey on Ken & Brad Kolodner’s “Swift House”
Turkey offers us a great vehicle for demonstrating the advantages of left-hand lead, for seeing the chord progression in the melody, creating variations and backup ideas.
