OLD SOLLY'S FAVORITE. Old-Time, Breakdown. AEad tuning (fiddle). The tune was in the repertoire of West Virginia fiddler Emory Bailey, and may refer to legendary West Virginia fiddler Solly Carpenter (see notes for "Annotation:Camp Chase (2)"). One of the few tunes played with the fiddle in AEad tuning, along with "Silver Lake (6)]" and "Old Sledge."
