  • This is an advanced Beginner arrangement of Forked Deer due to the large number of hammers and pulls. Take it slow and you can do this. One measure at a time.

  • This is a transcription of Kentucky fiddler Michael Garvin's arrangement of Forked Deer. Some pieces have been changed to be more playable on guitar, and to make the arrangement more "intermediate". There are still some challenges like multiple string crossings, hammers, pulls, and a lot of sixteenth notes. That's how you know it's a fiddle tune :)

  • This is a transcription of a Tim Stafford solo, and very close to the way he recorded it. There are no substitution licks. Just a pure, silky smooth arrangement of Forked Deer. Part of the way Stafford gets that smooth sound is by using a lot of hammers and pulls, especially on upstrokes in between string crossings.
