GREEN MOUNTAIN HORNPIPE. Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, Missouri. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Not related to "Green Mountain Petronella."

Source for notated version: African-American fiddler Bill Driver (Iberia, Missouri) [Christeson]. Driver lived in Miller County, Missouri, for most of his adult life in the early-mid 20th century and was a square dance fiddler noted for his vigorous playing and steady tempo. Christeson (1973) remarked he "represented the best example I encountered of a repertory strictly indigenous to a local area...[his] repertory was largely undiluted with hornpipes, jigs, or reels, which obviously came from the phonograph, or from the printed page shipped in by mail, or from an itinerant fiddler."

Printed sources: R.P. Christeson (Old Time Fiddlers Repertory, vol. 1), 1973; p. 19.
