X:1 T: John Tate's Two-Step C: N:From Glen Berry. Stuart Williams recorded Glen saying: "This came from an old N:Missouri fiddler named John Tate. He started out back in Missouri when he was just a N:ten year old kid playing in the saloons. Course they wouldn't let him drink but they N:would let him play fiddle. So he'd put a cigar box up on the bar and he was playing a N:cigar box fiddle. And he'd play and those guys would toss coins in the box. I knew N:John through the thirties and forties and the first part of the fifties. He was a painter N:who worked for Standard Oil Company and he'd be gone for months at a time. He N:played an old thick, dark, almost black Stainer. And boy he'd come home after months N:of being off somewhere painting, dig out that old Stainer fiddle and I never heard him N:have a bad day. He was just a natural. He was strictly an old time fiddler, really N:amazing, and this is one he used to play." Z:originally by Stuart Williams, published in the Washington Old Time Z:Fiddlers newsletter; abc's by V. T.
