Shave and a Haircut, Two Bits

Shave and a haircut, two bits
The classic fiddle tune tag, "shave and a haircut, two bits."

Curtis Baldwin asked for this fiddle tune tag in tab. I said, send me a SASE and I’ll do it up in hand drawn tab and send it.

Then, I got into it and made the CAD version for online publication. I could easily do a whole lesson on fiddle tune endings, and probably will.

This ending is such a strong folk tradition, every fiddler should know how to use it.

      Depending on what you are looking at….
      X means a beat of rest. Don’t play a note
      in that spot.
