One of the prettiest waltzes I know, and one of the hardest to play well, Gardenia waltz was written by the amazing Texas swing fiddler Johnny Gimble.
Forked Deer is a great tune, that I always enjoy playing with Brent Hawley. I originally learned it off of a Buddy Spicher recording where he announced the tune saying, “Look at the rack on that deer!”
