There is a fiddle tune called Spotted Pony or The Spotted Pony, normally played in the key of D, which seems to be pretty common among old time players. I had heard a different Spotted Pony, a Missouri tune played in A, on a recording by Cathy Barton Para and Dave Para called Sweet Journeys. At the Midwest Banjo Camp this year, Cathy taught Spotted Pony in A.
I’ve been struggling with this tune for a while. Here’s a little video of me practicing The Spotted Pony in A, played on my Dogwood Banjo.
