Tommy Jackson
TOMAHAWK [2]. American, Reel (cut time). A Major. Standard or AEae tuning (fiddle). AABB. Composed by fiddler Tommy Jackson (musician) (1926-1979) and South Carolina guitarist Hank "Sugarfoot" Garland, Elvis's sideman from 1957-1961. Jackson was in great demand as a Nashville session fiddler (who back such stars as Ernest Tubb, Patsy Cline and Hank Williams), but seldom was in the limelight. Jackson's long bow, fluid double-stops and virtuosic fingering defined the Nashville fiddling style in the mid-20th century.
