Re: The Telephone Tune

Thanks, have been wondering about it’s name.

Vermont Fiddle Orchestra:

Which lists it as a traditional tune, and claims it got it’s name when one musician taught it to another over the phone and neither could remember its correct name.

The Telephone Tune, X:2

From the playing of Tidal Wave.

Have edited X1 to match The Brock McGuire Band’s setting.
