Notes: This is a transcription of the recording on http://slippery-hill.com/RP/018-MoneyMusk.mp3. It bears little resemblance to the transcription in Christeson. It's a great example of the best in Missouri Valley Old Time music, with 4 parts and variations on two of them. Not to hard to play, but can sure befuddle the ear. I've played through it a lot, comparing it with the recording, and I think I have it pretty much right. Christeson's reed organ drowns out the fiddle in some places, and the fidelity of the wire recorder adds to the difficulty of hearing, as well.
