BOATING UP SANDY . American, Reel (cut time). D Major ('A' part) & G Major ('B' part). DGad tuning (fiddle). AAB. This "Boating up Sandy" was in the repertoire of Copen, Braxton County, West Virginia, fiddler Melvin Wine (1909-2003). The first strain begins solidly in the key of 'D', and continues until the last two bars, where it cadences in the key of 'G'. The second strain is in G major throughout. Contrast the tune with "Boating Up Sandy (3)" from contemporary fiddler Wilson Douglas (1922-1999), of Rush Fork, Clay County, West Virginia, whose reel is in A mixolydian throughout. The tunes are not cognate, but they are similar in structure.
