Fourth of July Breakdown

Recording Date: 
Sunday, July 17, 2016

Really this should be called Unnamed Breakdown #67 from Volume 2 of R.P. Christeson's 'The Old-Time Fiddlers Repertory' but in the accompanying explanatory note, written by Christeson, that stated "Waldo Helton played this tune at every Fourth of July picnic in Dixon, Missouri, from the early twenties to the early thirties". So when Brett posted it for a Tune of the Week he called it "Waldo Helton's July 4th Breakdown", and I call it "Fourth of July Breakdown" just to be confusing.

Banjo Style: 
GoldTone WL-250 banjo
