Folding Down the Sheets (ADAE)

Genre: Old-Time  Key: D

Notes: There are many fun versions of this tune. There's a recording of Henry Reed over at (same as what's notated in the
Milliner Koken Collection), and another of Frank[lin] George available
through the Berea Digital Archives website. However, something about
about Rayna Gellert's version drew me in. I like the bounce, and surprisingly,
the repetition of it. Where H.Reed played two short A parts followed by two
short B's, in this version the A and B parts are doubled. Also, any extra
beat(s) H.Reed played have been left out, making this a square tune.

John Cole (G) John Salyer

Genre: Old-Time  Key: G  Tuning: Standard

Download: TEXT | ABC | MIDI [Play] [Download]

Notes: ABC notation and audio (MIDI) derived from Jeff Titon's transcription,
with one alteration. High-E doublestops in measures 5-7 and 14-16 were
replaced with Low-E doublestops. Also, chord guesses have been added.

ABC, MIDI (and MP3) were generated from the "dots" in the Milliner Koken book.

I've heard a few recordings now of this weird little tune. The source recording by Theo & Gus Clark over at Slippery-Hill, a youtube video of Morgan Fichter (beautifully played), a track on Hart and Blech's CD, and now perhaps my favorite by the Downhill Strugglers. The guitar is super interesting too!
