DESERT TRAIL

"Ah, THERE's your problem. You're hearing straight four. BOOM boom boom boom. You should be hearing 2s Boom bum Boom bum. Native Americans always play straight fours in the movies. Arabs don't. Problem solved! ;-)"

DESERT TRAIL

"Well, all I hear now is #2 complete with the BOOM boom boom boom drum effect used in movies. As an earlier example I offer up "Could Chief" by J. Ernest Philie notice the intro and similar…"

DESERT TRAIL

"I would say that colonialism, exoticism, the "grand tour", popular archaeology and war have all driven this bus. Morley lived in a period where exotic travel was considered "required"...both if you had the money (leisure) or not…"

DESERT TRAIL

"Quite so, Steve, but that was 12 years before Morley published Desert Trail.  If that was what he was expecting his public to think of when they bought the sheet music, he had left it a bit late. Was Egyptian Princess closer to that date? …"

DESERT TRAIL

"Another event that happened at this time was the release in 1921 of the Rudolf Valentino film 'The Sheik' followed a few years later by 'The son of the Sheik' both featuring the Arabian desert...Steve."

DESERT TRAIL

"Thank you, Tony.  Yes, they do take work and I think you are right about focusing on the hard sections.  I guess when you see a performance, you don't see the many hours of practice behind it.  Well done, though - it is a great…"

DESERT TRAIL

"Carrie, Sorry about the previous flippant answer. It was a serious question and deserves a serious answer. I don’t find any banjo solos actually easy - they all take work to make them sound OK. A simple tune will probably end up being…"

DESERT TRAIL

"Does anyone have the original title sheet for this piece?  Sometimes they are themed.  An example of this is Grimshaw's "Fretwork" that has fretwork shown on the cover (fretwork being fancy cutouts using a…"

DESERT TRAIL

"Hmm... Now that I listen to it again with a "different ear"  I can hear that sort of "Native American" early movie soundtrack sounding thing going on. I had just presumed it was "Oriental"... but…"

DESERT TRAIL

"Thanks, Carrie.  It’s so difficult that it’s hard to believe my fingers didn’t leave my hands! Jody, it is interesting to note that in 1935 the movie The Desert Trail was released, starring John Wayne.  How about them…"

DESERT TRAIL

""Sand Dance" seems to have had the same meaning in Britain. During these lockdown days I have been perusing Honeyman's Strathspey, Reel and Hornpipe Tutor, published in Dundee in 1898. The hornpipe section goes into detail about how 3…"

DESERT TRAIL

"Thanks for sharing!  This is one of the more enjoyable pieces (for me) by Morley.  He gets a bit hippty hoppity in much of his work and this one comes off as more serious or something. The trio is fun to play too! Interesting, "Sand…"

DESERT TRAIL

"Thanks. Your mention of going into the sand set me off on a different track, and I looked up what Wilson Kepple and Betty were doing at this time, and found that in 1933 they were featured in the annual Royal Variety Performance.  Wilson and…"
