I can't recall if we've looked for these dots or not...and naturally, my collection is packed away.

I was listening to "Dixie Medley" today at lunch and marvelling at Mr. Eps facility with the jigs and reels. I know he recorded a wide variety of versions, some with "Suwanee River" done in tremelo fashion and some not.

Anyone have the dots to this ? I would like to see how it was arranged, esp. in comparison to today's methods. Would be a fun one to trot out in front of the bluegrassers, esp. since they all think they invented this stuff. ;-)

And did he compose it?   This sounds like he wanted the banjo buried!  Or did he want a march for himself played on his banjo?

I reckon it was actually Typhoid Fever. Legend has it that in his final hours, “...realizing that death was at hand, he called for pencil and paper that he might compose a funeral march for his beloved banjo.”

I will hazard a guess at one of Frank Bradbury's instruction books.

"My love Is But a Lassie" is called "Odd Fellows' March" (my personal favorite title) in Frankie B's "green" book.

Nope, Frank B. Converse's 1865 book

I sit corrected or conversely I am correctly sitting.
