LOST INDIAN [6]. American, Reel (whole time). USA, southwestern Pa. A Major (Bayard-Wolford): G Major (Bayard-Provance). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. This was the most prevalent version of "Lost Indian" that southwestern Pennsylvania fiddlers played, in Samuel Bayard's collecting experience, although he thought the tune was more widespread. Bayard's (Dance to the Fiddle, 1981) source Provance (who whistled it, as he could no longer play the fiddle) said "a good fiddler can make it sound like an Indian givin' a war-whoop" (p. 81).
