    I’ve seen some versions calling this “Indian on a Stomp,” but the French title is “Sauvage sur le Chicot,” so definitely a stump. 🙂


    Cool lesson…sounds so good!  I like that.  I gotta learn more Calico tunes!  That’s a good one.


    I’ve always gone from that tune right into “Black Mountain Rag”.

    They make great show pieces when put together.

    Nice lesson.


    Nice job! Can’t wait to learn it with jam season coming up!


    I love this tune! I’ve been wanting to learn something ‘oldtimey’ so I started learning it this afternoon- and it’s not as hard as I would have thought!

    Thank you for the lesson! I never played in calico tuning before 🙂

    Glad you liked it!
