Here's the tune transposed for the B flat gang, along a "long note" part. This Canadian waltz from the 1960s has become very popular in the States. There are a lot of different ways to play it. There's an amazing video of mandolin wizard Chris Thile playing it solo on Youtube.

A New tune for the Crooked Stovepipe Orchestra. This is a pretty rough an ready recording! I left out the G# in the B part just because it's so darned awkward to play on the concertina. I just cheated around the note the way i sometimes do in these cases. You'll be able to do better I'm sure!

THE RAKES OF KILDARE / Slow - For the Crooked Stovepipe Folk Orchestra. A classic Irish jig that's been a standard in Canada for the better part of a couple of centuries as well. There are a lot of different settings of this tune - this is just one of them. This is a slowish take on it, but "Rakes" is one of those minor key jigs that you can really drive hard and fast, if you're in the mood for that sort of thing. We'll take a run at this at our next get-together on TUESDAY April 22 at ...

CS FOLK ORCHESTRA - One more bit of music for April 9th. Here are a a couple of parts for The Crooked Stovepipe tune that aren't as "notey" as the actual melody. They're a little like horn lines. They'd sound good on anything, but probably best on sustaining instruments like whistles, flutes, reeds, fiddles. Check them out. The two parts work in harmony with each other. (and the tune!)

For the CS Folk Orchestra. The first tune of a planned Hank Williams Medley. "I'm So Lonesome I could Cry" (I know - it's not from Ontario - but I thought it would be fun to do anyway!) For you rhythm section players - on the recording there's an 8 bar intro, with nice descending bass runs. If you can figure those out, great - If not, don't worry I'll show you how to do them. The runs can be played under the tune as well. The letters in brackets on the chart are the bass notes to play ...

Here's the classic Canadian old-time fiddle tune called "The Crooked Stovepipe". It's played a little faster in this video. It's in the key of G. There's a harmony line for the B part that only happen the second time through. Learn it if you can. The guitar part includes some bass runs that sound nice when backing up this kind of tune, but are entirely optional. I threw the bass lines in a little differently that I did on the slow version, but the basic chords remain the same. There are a million different ways to ...
