Subject: Tune Req: Help To Identify This Melody
From: Rob Naylor
Date: 19 Jun 10 - 12:13 PM

I have a fragment of a tune score on an old photocopy. I'd like to find out the name and author so I can get the full score as I'm quite taken with the bit I do have.

I've uploaded it to YouTube at:

Unknown tune Fragment

I've just run through the first ("A") part once. I have about 3 notes from a "B" part so I know that's not the complete tune. It may be from a guitar instruction book of the "Play In A Day" type. Any help to ID this greatly appreciated!

Rob

Thirty-one views and no-one knows it yet!

This isn't like a normal Mudcat response. I know it's not folk, but that doen't usually stop Mudcatters.


So either:

- it's quite obscure

- it's so well known that no-one can believe I'm seriously asking

- the playing's so bad that no-one could ever identify it

This sounds like it could be the 'real' version of something that was played around here until we all forgot to keep playing it.

It seems like the one from here was a place-name blues and I think of it as a fiddle tune.

On a quick listen it sounds vaugely reminiscent of Big Bill Broonzy's Too Too Train Blues but I'm not sure... I'll have a few more listens and a think.

Zen: Had a listen to "Too Too Train Blues". I can hear some similarities, but it's not the same tune.

Melissa: I've had a look at several blues tunes with placenames in the title and so far drawn a blank.

Dunno why it's bugging me so much...I guess I like the bit I've learned and just want to find the whole tune if possible. I wish I knew where the photocopy of the part score came from. I think it fell out of an old "BMG" magazine dated 1971 that I got in a junk shop a while back, which would indicate that it at least pre-dates 1972 (or maybe not, if it was inserted subsequently...but the mag is in pretty pristine condition. Not well-used).

I initially thought: "no problem, I'll play it, put the clip on YouTube, link to it from a Mudcat thread and someone'll ID it within a couple of hours" :-)

NOW it's bugging me that this didn't happen :-) . Oh well!

Sounds like a slow, interesting, fiddled about with version of "The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy From Company B" to me, but that's just an untrained ear in the background, I'm afraid.
