Hey Fiddle Friends!
My inspiration for this tune was the slide down at the beginning of the Orville Burns tune, Cumberland Gap. (Check out my Fiddle Tune a Day recording of Cumberland Gap here)
Since I live in Colorado, and there’s already a whole other tune called Cumberland Gap, I decided to name it after a Colorado Geological feature. AND, being a lefty, I couldn’t resist naming it after Lefthand Canyon, which is not far from Loveland.
It was named after Chief Niwot, a Left-handed Arapaho tribal leader. (Niwot also means left-handed)
Listen to my recording, learn it by ear or by the sheet music below, and record your version and send me a link.
I can’t wait to hear your take on Lefthand Canyon! Show me what you’ve got.
Keep on Fiddling!
