Holdjer horses, there, Texan!

The music will come out Wednesday, on schedule. If you want to try to pick it out beforehand, have at it.

Took me a minute to get that Josh comment. :roll: :lol: I reckon Josh'll let us borrow his song for a couple of weeks.

Jim, if you really want to get a head start, try this link:

http://www.traditionalmusic.co.uk/folksw/014632.HTM

It's slightly different than the way I have it written out, but not much.

I have an alternative tune prepared, with fewer repeats. But since the rhythm of this song is so strong, it would probably be okay to play the recorder "tah" way more than you would in Irish Trad.

Plus, most of the repeats are in the verses. If you just want to work on the chorus, that's the most familiar part of the song anyway.

This is an amazingly hard song to find any other free resource for. :shock:

Normally I can find several versions of the song of choice online in an hour or so. Not this one .... strange, very strange. It's not even in my Hymn Fake Book.

... whodathunkit? :?

try looking under spirituals .... and be specific if you have to .. and use Negro spirituals.

Don't know if much there .. might also go with Dixie land jazz

This is true. This thread was a blast! The song will be up in the morning (Lord willing), three versions ranging from easiest to hardest, with midis for Shadoes (:D )of each version.

BTW, if y'all can manage the hardest, it should be a rip-roaring good time. :mrgreen:

Judy, you might also try searching under "Joshua Fit..." AND "Joshua Fought..."

For the information of those interested (primarily me): Because I was the first to guess both tunes correctly, I am going to give myself, and therefore be the recipient of, a whistle. Self, here is a pre-owned (or is it currently owned?) whistle. :)

(Amazing how one can be amused by such small things.)

Well, don't keep us in suspense, Keith. Which whistle did you award yourself?? :mrgreen: Inquring minds want to know!

Keith told me to tell you that you too might be one sandwich short of a picnic. ;)

I awarded myself my Water Weasel A. I'm actually going to be playing this tonight. Once a year, for a whole week, our local congregation (those who can) camp at the beach. This is a huge event for the local folks (and the kids absolutely love it -- very wholesome and memory-creating times), and tonight we are having the final luau. I'm going to play a handful of tunes there and I'll use the WW for a few of them. It should be fun, but wish me luck anyway. (I may actually look for someone who can play ukulele or guitar -- there will be plenty and lots with real talent.)
