"Davy Dugger" and "SHOOT THAT TURKEY BUZZARD" are two tunes that CLYDE DAVENPORT learned from his father WILL DAVENPORT. Each has a simple two-part structure and is played in the key of G. If you listen closely you will hear pulsations on the offbeat. Clyde makes these accents by momentarily pressing harder on his bow. His technique is deliberate and skillful. He decides when to bow one string at a time and when to make chords by bowing two. To hear the songs, click the mouse pointer over the "Play" buttons.
MUSICAL ANALYSIS suggests that these two songs are similar. Perhaps one came from the other, or both from a third tune, like "Seneca Square Dance."
