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

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.

Notes: I borrowed the Banjo tab from the Banjo Hangout's Lee Marcus and Jack Baker and added an easy (but impressive to your listeners) beginner's fiddle part! By the way, the banjo is D tuning!

Notes: This tune was developed using a Mandolin while camping in Rocky Mountain National Park. The "C" section includes a minor key and the "D" section has high harmony in Fiddle 2.
