Doctor Hecock's Jig

"Yes, that is sort of what I remember. Don't get me wrong Sonny, you did a killer job on this. I just recollect my own struggle with it, and then hearing the relief of the smooth fiddle players. The same is true for almost ALL of the "back…"

Doctor Hecock's Jig

"I wish I could remember where it came from. I thought someone put it here. Any recollections? It really had a swing to it...that sort of evades us banjoists. It's a hard tune."
