Wild One Medley - The Moving Violations
A New England contra dance band called _The Moving Violations_ plays this tune as a round. It’s a brilliant rendition, available on their website - http://www.themovingviolations.com/ - scroll down to the bottom.
No hint of a round in the version on their website - it is played very straight ahead. But it could work on this tune. Great modal, bluesy tune…
It seems to me that there’s a fiddle playing the A part while the guitar plays the B part, and then they switch, but now I’m not so sure - it could just be that the backing instruments are…backing.
In any case, it’s a great tune, and a great setting of it. And I have a thing for tunes in ambiguous keys - this one has no B’s, flat or natural.
Discussion: What One Octave Tunes in D exist?

The Wild One
Basically the same notation but with the stress pattern changed in the first and fifth bars; has a nice effect.
