COLEMAN'S MARCH [3]. American, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. "Coleman's March [3]" is unrelated to any of the other tunes with this title. It was played by fiddler Isham Monday (1879-1964), a fiddler from Monroe County, south-central Kentucky, rugged hill country located in the Pennyroyal Plateau region of the state, on the border with Tennessee. The cadence is similar to that of "Sally Goodin", while the 2nd strain is similar to that of "Billy in the Lowground (1)."
