LITTLE DAISY. American, Reel (cut time). A Major. AEae tuning (fiddle). AABB. A moderately paced tune--slower than a reel, a bit faster than a march, as source Kingery played it; it was perhaps derived from a song. The tempo has increased somewhat since then, but still goes at a leisurely pace for a breakdown.
Pat Kingery and the Kentuckians (P. Kingery, fiddle, with Iola Weaver, Tommy Bellamy, Bill Wagoner, and Troy Basil)
