Subject: RE: Lyr Req: If I Had a Ribbon Bow
If you would be content with the melody, to which you can add chords, I can send in a MIDI in any key you want. That is, if Joe Offer is available to put the MIDI on the Mudcat.
This song occurs in the book "Seven Kentucky Mountain Songs, collected and arranged by John J. Niles. I just got a copy of the book from my public library. If you live in the U.S., you may be able to do the same.
Trouble is, the song in the book is quite high. It's in the key of B flat and the highest note is an F. The beauty of going with my MIDI is that I can lower it with two strokes of the keyboard.
Tell me what is your comfortable highest note, and I will make a MIDI to suit, send it to Joe, and then it should appear here. I assume that your school has a way to download and print a MIDI.
