LARDNER'S REEL [2]. American, Reel. USA, southwestern Pa. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'B. Bayard's source, fiddler Irvin Yaugher, maintained this was "the old-fashioned way of playing it" (referring to the tune "Lardner's Reel (1)." The tunes are somewhat distanced, however. Yaugher did play "Lardner's Reel (1)" as well, transcribed by Bayard in Hill Country Tunes (1944). Variants of the first strain of "Lardner's" show up in tradition in several tunes, as for example in "Bill Driver Tune" and "Kansas City Reel" in Missouri.
