WAGONER [3]. AKA - "Wagner." American, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABB. This 'crooked' or irregularly metered reel was in the repertoire of Magoffin County, east Kentucky, fiddler John Salyer (1882-1952). Two versions of the tune were recorded by his sons, Glen and Grover, on a home disc machine in 1941 and 1942, and they accompany him on many of the tunes. Salyer plays "Wagoner" at a moderately quick pace, slower than some of his all-out breakdown tunes.
