ALL YOUNG. American, Reel (cut time). A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle).
Source for notated version : - Melvin Wine [Milliner & Koken, Phillips]. The tune was played by Melvin's great-grandfather, David S. "Smithy" Wine (1829-1909), and was passed down to his son John Nelson "Nels" Wine (who, while not a fiddler, whistled, hummed, and sang his father's tunes), to his son Bill Wine, Melvin's father. Family lore has it that "All Young" and "Rainy Day (2) (The)" were favorite tunes of Smithy's [Drew Beisswenger, Fiddling Way Out Yonder, 2008).
