Subject: John Henry - Sheet Music Anyone?
From: Tom D.
Date: 23 May 01 - 12:27 AM

Listening to John Fahey's "Variations on John Henry" has led me to want to get the sheet music so that I might play this old standby on the tinwhistle. On the assumption that this is a public domain tune, and there would be no copyright infringement, does anyone know where I can get the sheet music? ABC notation would be fine. I think I have picked the tune out (roughly), but, alas, I have a tin ear and want to see if I actually have it right. I am aware that the lyrics are available through this site, as there was a thread on the tune in the last week or so. I'm looking for the notes, not the wsords or the chords.

Thanks,

Tom D.

Tom, I don't have time to check them, tonight, but if you go up to the top of the Forum page, and type in "john henry" in the SuperSearch box, then hit Go, all the messages and threads with John Henry in them will come up. You can click on those and see if any of them have the ABC's of it. There were a couple of specific threads which looked as though they might. You just have to read through the postings and see.

Good luck,

kat
