PINE TOP . American, Reel. USA, southwestern Pa. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. A hybrid tune. The second strain is the same as the once very popular tune "Jaybird" (Jay Bird), while the first strain seems derived from the French-Canadian "Old Man and the Old Woman (1)," "Old Jakey Buzzard" or a similar cognate tune (Bayard, 1981).
