Happy birthday Dow! ~ and for any others out there that appreciated the fiddling and compositions of Willy Taylor… This transcription is from his playing. I fought hard not to get in the way of it, but if there are any foul-ups, mea culpa…
;-)

Thanks Geoff, a good addition. All we need now is someone to transcribe Willy Taylor’s take on it to add to the comments there. I’ve heard it under many different hands, including North America, both sides of the border, and over here on these various islands, and under the bow of a Breton fiddler too, etc…

You’ve just reminded me of another that isn’t here yet… ;-)

Didn’t Willy Taylor lose half a finger on his left hand?

Talking to yourself again, eh dafydd? Here is that excerpt, a good one that deserves another mention, courtesy of Noel Jackson, alias noelbats ~

"Willy lost his forefinger of his left hand in a turnip cutter whilst a young man. He played with only three fingers and with a very powerful up bow, a completely distinctive style that is hard to emmulate. We only lost him last year and he is sorely missed."

~ Noel Jackson, Angels of the North
