North Carolina Breakdown, Tennessee’s Fiddlin' Arthur Smith, c 1937. Mary Gordon and Hilary Dirlam mentioned that Arthur Smith’s guitar player played an E major chord in the B part, not an Em. A little awkward the first time you hear it, but then it grows on you. We like it. Fiddle: GDAE Banjo: gDGBD
