I mentioned this a while ago that I decided, as they say, “to diversify”….. into providing sheet music. I have been making notating scores, individual instrument parts and/or lead sheets and chord charts available for sale on my web site. So, as of today, I have posted sheet music for the following compositions:
- Trailer Park Santa
- Hallelujah Chorus
- All Things New
- Mary’s Gift
- Angeline the Baker
- Bluesy Bach Opus 1
I hope to continue notating scores and I will be getting the rest of the Bluesy Bach pieces notated, hopefully sooner rather than later.
You can find them on the Sheet Music page.
Here is a preview of “Angeline the Baker”. I found this tune in a book called “The Fiddler’s Fakebook” left over from my aborted attempt at learning to play the violin/fiddle. I never got rid of the book because I love a lot of the music in there and find it enjoyable to play on the guitar.
My recording of “Angeline the Baker” is an arrangement I created of an old time fiddle tune based on a song called “Angelina Baker” written by Stephen Foster for the Christy Minstrels, and published in 1850. The original laments the loss of a woman slave, sent away by her owner. The melody of the fiddle tune, Angeline the Baker differs from the Stephen Foster version.
In my arrangement and instrumentation in this recording I spiced it up and added a bit of country flavor! See my music page to buy a copy of Angeline the Baker.
