BLACKFOOT. American, Reel (cut time). USA, Kentucky. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. There are extra beats in a measure in both strains, making it a 'crooked' (irregular) tune. Titon says that his source, Clyde Davenport, is the only older musician he has heard play this tune in tradition.
