SHELVIN' ROCK [6]. AKA and see "Shelby Rock." American, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABCAC. The tune is sourced to fiddler Milo Biggers (1894-1976), of Glasgow, Barren County, in south-central Kentucky, just west of what is considered the Cumberland Plateau region (Glasgow is mid-way between Nashville, Tenn., and Louisville, Ky.). Biggers' "Shelvin' Rock" is unrelated to other tunes of the same name, which are most often played in A cross-tuning. Biggers was recorded in 1974 by field researcher Bruce Greene. See also Kenny Baker's "<incipit title="load:shelby" width=850 link="https://tunearch.org/wiki/Shelby Rock">Shelby Rock</incipit>" for a bluegrass-style adaptation of this tune.
