JAKE'S GOT THE BELLYACHE. American, Reel (cut time) A Mixolydian. ADae tuning (fiddle). AAB. This moderate tempo modal breakdown was in the repertoire of West Virginia fiddler Edden Hammons [1]. A version (with a slightly different rhythm and a more pronounced modal character) called "Kate's Got the Bellyache" has been collected in southeastern Kentucky from the playing of Estill Bingham. Also played in 'G'.

Edden Hammons (1876-1955)
