Around the World on a Dime
'AROUND THE WORLD ON A DIME. Old-Time, Blues. USA, Missouri. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA’B. A unique tune in the repertoire of southern Missouri fiddler Ray Curbow, who said he learned it in the 1970’s from Ozark, Missouri, fiddler Johnny Boyd. Curbow told Mark Wilson the story that Boyd and his brother were sitting on their home porch playing, when a black man walked by with a fiddle in his sack. Hearing the brothers, he approached and asked if he could sit in, eventually playing this 'em.
