Collector and musician Bruce Greene recorded this version of "Walking in the Parlor", a widespread tune in Appalachian fiddle repertory, from Burnsville, North Carolina, fiddler Welzie Chrisawn. After he played the tune for the tape, Chrisawn opined "I don't like that." "You don't," prodded Greene, to which Welzie averred "Not much." "Why not?" said Bruce. "Too hard to play," responded the elder musician.
