ROCKY MOUNTAINS [3]. American, Reel (cut time). E Minor ('A' part) & G Major ('B' and 'C' parts). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABC. The second strain of Everett Kays' "Rocky Mountains [3]" is the same as the first strain of "Stoney Point/Wild Horse." "Rocky Mountains" is a title that appears in two of the Berea, Ky., fiddle tune lists, a 1915 classroom project of Berea College [1], but it was not a title that was played at the fiddle contests held at Berea between 1919 and 1928 that attracted fiddlers more or less from the same regions as represented in the student lists. There is no way of telling which 'Rocky Mountain' tune the title represents, however.
