View Full Version : C'mon Fisher's Hornpipe!

Mar-25-2004, 1:00pm
Hey folks. #90 some odd members, (some of whom actually may be odd http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif #), and only 50 votes (which is actually quite good turnout!).

An added vote for Fisher's H.pipe brings it w/in 4 votes of Cherokee.

(I don't really mind which one we play....but I thought I'd stir the pot.)

I'm guessing craig has done the same as I ... he already started working on Cherokee Shuffle ... didn't ya'?

Of course, I only started this very mornig, so I might just go over to Yahoo! and stir up some trouble. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif

oh contrar! i haven't even recorded sallyg, yet. but, cherokee shuffle did get my vote. i think we need to persuade some of those "beaumont rag" and "bonaparte's retreat" voters to come to our party! how about we offer you guys free recording software and "gold" membership to our exclusive club? any takers? oh, and we'll lower your taxes, and provide free health-care for everyone!!

I'm really hoping Bonanparte's Retreat will make it one of these month's ... I already have an idea. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif

Boney voter here http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif ....but where the group leads, I will follow. It sure has been a quiet week here....I am impatiently waiting for some more recordings of Sally Goodin....So far, I have learned something from every one that has posted and I am just loving it....maybe one day do a composite recording with as many of the variations as possible....that would be a fun one don't ya think?

Any of the songs listed will be fine with me.... I can be bought....very cheap....well....yea.....reallly cheap:cool:

Just switched my vote from Bonaparte to Cherokee (getting nervous about the number of votes for Fisher's). We'll have to try for Bonaparte's again next time.

Wow, Cherokee shuffle and Fisher's hornpipe are both on 26,79% today. Amazing! I'll need to look up some versions of Fisher's hornpipe! I was sure Cherokee shuffle would win...Didn't even believe Fisher's would get so many votes. Not that I mind, I really like that tune. Just a surprise anyway.

Which version of Fisher's Hornpipe from the Co-Mando site would we be learning....it includes the one by Ray Legere on the Wyatt Rice recording (the one with the 64th..or are they 128th? notes in the lead!)

Also, I learned Cherokee Shuffle from the Steve Kaufman CD and it's in a different key (easier key, in my opinion). But I suppose if that's to be, I can relearn it in the Co-Mando key


Mar-28-2004, 12:25pm
Does it have to be the exact same version ? (Not that I have anything against learning something new) Everyone seems to have done their own variation on "Sally Goodin".

Mar-28-2004, 1:16pm
it'll be whatever version YOU want to learn. i'll post link to an "official" version (whatever that means). but, pick whichever version suites you. it's been fun having all these different versions of sallyg. i'll try to pick the easiest TEF version of whichever song wins in the poll.

thanks for switching your vote! i was afraid i'd have to be the tie-breaker . . .

I downloaded the midi versions of both Cherokee and Fisher's. I really liked Robertson's Fisher's. But I have another version that is much nicer, because it goes minor in the second round.

Well, I'd like to see Cumberland Gap sometime (the fact I already know half of it does NOT sway my vote) http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
C'mon Fisher's Hornpipe!

i'm with you on cumberland gap. that's definitely got my vote next month! i love the version on the Bluegrass Mandolin Extravaganza set. good stuff!

c'mon cherokee shuffle http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Can we do 'Fisher's Hornpipe' in the key of F???
ho, boy buddy!!

Mar-30-2004, 5:43pm
This is pretty funny! I didn't expect to see the Fisher's tie up the Cherokee so quick! Ha ha!

I can't play either one yet - I havne't even tried. I just thought I'd throw a bone out and see what happened!

C'mon Craig - get your Sally G in!!!! (Or are you too busy uploading all the misc.musings now!)

Once again. Great work Craig. This is great.


Mar-30-2004, 5:44pm
thank you to whoever added that 21st vote to cherokee shuffle!

c'mon cherokee!! just a little over 24 hours to go.

Mar-30-2004, 5:46pm

dude it's there. "drchenson", that's me. but, don't say your weren't forwarned. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Mar-31-2004, 8:41am
Good job Craig! I had listened to it already. Awesome. (I thought I read somewhere on one of these threads that you were still working on Sally G, so I didn't think you had yet...)


Apr-01-2004, 12:56pm
Aye, it was a valiant effort folks! Made it interesting surging from the back. Now I got to learn that Cherokee Hornpipe or whatever it is called! Fisher's Shuffle Demon Hornpipe.....

Speaking of which, there was a band in Toronto I remember called the "Shuffle Demons".....
