Hello guys. I went to the Shortnin bread page and it said download tune. I click it and error. Whata going on? Is it the mudcat midis Shortnin bread? I mean, its not even on sniff numachi. Can somebody add a ABC and midi for this tune? That would be helpful!

The midis on Mudcat have been not-there for a long, long time. Here's this lovely tune on YouTube, complete with cute animation. Have fun!

That's interesting. The tunes were working a few days ago, but now they're gone. Nope, that's not it. On second thought, I think it's just this one song, and maybe we didn't have a tune for it at all. I checked other songs, like Deep Blue Sea, and they're working fine. Most of the tunes are intact and available, but not this one. We haven't figured out an easy way to fix this, but we're working on it.

There are a number of Websites that mirror the 2002 version of our Digital Tradition Folk Song Database (our online version of the database is newer, but I don't know the date). The most reliable one is called "Yet Another Digital Tradition," http://sniff.numachi.com/. I see that "Yet Another" does not have tunes for any of our three versions of "Shortnin' Bread," so maybe it's a problem with just this one song.

If you need a MIDI or a scan of the sheet music, email me. It used to be that Q and I and Masato Sakurai and Malcolm Douglas could find tunes in our vast collections of songbooks, but I'm the only one of them left. If anybody else has a vast songbook collection and would like to volunteer to be available to transcribe tunes, let me know.

The Traditional Ballad Index lists several books that have tunes for this song. I think I have them all, and I'm certainly willing to transcribe one or two MIDIs or send scans. When we come across missing tunes, I've been doing my best to transcribe the tunes and post them to my own Website (with links on Mudcat). That's a temporary solution that we've had for the last 5 years, and I just renewed my Website for another 10 years as a supplement to Mudcat - but it's a tedious process, and I'd like to work out something better.

Oh - I see that we have the tune in Mudcat MIDIs, and there's a link to it in the origins thread. So, I withdraw my offer to post a MIDI, because we have it already. Here's a direct link to the MIDI: http://mudcat.org/midi/midifiles/shortnin.mid

Barely counts as tune, does it?

But it has got something and it can swing like the proverbial...

We used to do a version for dancing, with a Jerry Garcia opening guitar lick, stop-time harmonica breaks and walking bass - lovely stuff.
