CARROLLTOWN BREAKDOWN [2]. AKA and see "Shaddighee," "Silver Lake (5)." Old-time, Reel. USA, southwestern Pa. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Bayard (1981) believes this tune to be a derivative of "Buffalo Gals" (See Buffalo Gals (1) <div class="mw-ext-score" data-midi="/w/images/lilypond/d/f/dfzgcy8lbuxkg8zqu859k48m9qhg6qz/dfzgcy8l.midi"><img src="/w/images/lilypond/d/f/dfzgcy8lbuxkg8zqu859k48m9qhg6qz/dfzgcy8l.png" width="608" height="52" alt=" X:1 M:C| L:1/8 K: G D2 |G3A B2G2 | BcdB G2Bc | d2cB A2F2 | AGFE D2EF | "/></div> Variants he notes are "Off to Charleston," and his (1944) No. 1b version of "Buffalo Gals," which he now considers to be "Carroltown Breakdown." The alternate name "Shaddighee" also appears in Don Messer’s volumes as "The Chatagee" but with a different tune.
