SALLY IN THE GARDEN [3]. American, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. This version of “Sally in the Garden” is from Monticello, Kentucky, fiddler Clyde Davenport (). It is ‘crooked’ or irregular in the 2nd strain, with the addition of a musical ‘tag’ at the end, which reprises the two cadence measures of the first strain. The first strain melodic material (with the exception of the 2nd and 6th measures) link Davenport’s tune with the more common “Sally in the Garden (1)”/”Hog Eye (1)” branch of tunes. However, the non-tag part of the 2nd strain of Davenport’s tune employs different melodic material, and the result is that the whole is distinctively different than other versions.
