SHAMROCK SHODDY. American, Reel (cut or 2/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB (Silberberg): ABCC. The tune is sourced to Nabob, Barren County, south-central Kentucky (below Bowling Green), fiddler Pat Kingery (1912-1976), who was recorded in the field by collector Bruce Greene. The melody was perhaps originally a schottische.
