Soldier’s Joy has been one of the most commonly performed fiddle tunes for generations. This transcription is based on a performance that Marion Underwood and Sam Harris recorded for the Gennett Company in Richmond, Indiana, on April 26, 1927.

Their performance is slightly unusual in that it reverses the usual order of the ‘A’ and ‘B’ strains, with the frenetic higher variation coming first. This transcription, however, reflects the more traditional ordering of the strains.
