From Rags not to Riches

Posted by Grassapelli on Saturday, April 24, 2010

The Crystal Beach String Band just completed the mix of its album. I uploaded the Rag Medley from the album.

It includes E Tennessee Blues, Texas Crapshooter and Beaumont Rag. It's here.

Part of E Tenn Blues is played in a simplified manner that I introduced to a student who had been traumatized at t fiddle camp by the hard version. (Why do they do that?)

I don't tink it hurts a thing to simplify tunes a little bit.
