This is a tune I found at: http://collectionscanada.ca/gramophone/m2-9000-e.html
It was entitled the “Virginia Reel” (French Canadian fiddler A.J. Boulay). This tune has an extra couple of bars in it (true to Quebecois tradition). During a session, where I was passing it on to my friends, we were inundated by swarms of the local “provincial” bird: The infamous Manitoba mosquito! We immediately renamed it (in Quebecois fashion), “le reel du maringuoin”; “the reel of the mosquito”.
Add a little left-hand plucking (and appropriate slaps to the guitar/mandolin/bass body), and you can have yourself a good time!
P.S. We added the hand-slaps for effect on the beat after the plucks like this:
