Race the River Jordan

Genre: Old-Time  Key: A  Tuning: Standard  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by slc, updated: 2/24/2014
Download: ABC

Notes: A 'mixolydian' (A modal - the notes are of the D major scale but the tune is in A. Old Joe Clark is also in A mix). This tune was first written on the banjo about 1985. Over the years I've evolved my fiddle version of this to very close to what's notated here. I do a small shift at the G chord (first part) not noted here because my ABC chops aren't strong enough! Check my video to compare. Note that Mark Simos later recorded an excellent CD with a song with this title, inspired by the title of my tune, and later arranged the tune itself for a Childplay concert and CD a few years ago. Where the title first came from is a whole different story :-)

Ragtime Annie, Eck Robertson

Key: D  Tuning: Standard  Difficulty: Intermediate

Download: PDF

Notes: Finally got around to revising this to make it more readable with Musescore. The old software I had wouldn't let me do a lot of things. This is, I think, an accurate transcription of Eck's first time through each section on the CD. I've played it in MIDI against the recording, and against the way I play it (learned from the recording), and can't find any deviations. If you do, let me know and I'll edit. If anybody wants the Musescore file or a universal format, I can probably load that up as well.
