Does anyone know where I can find the tab or music to "The Light Dragoon" on the CD Waterson:Carthy? My friend is looking for it and I was trying to help him out.

There is a song called "Light Dragoon Quickstep" in a Mel Bay book called "Howe's 1,000 Jigs and Reels - Clog Dances, Contra Dances " at this site:

It can be purchased at these sites:

or at http://www.amazon.com/exec....=glance (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0786654775/002-0119688-0265607?v=glance)

I am not sure if it is the same one, but maybe someone else on the board is familiar with it and can tell you if it is the one your friend is looking for.

Thanks Django Fret,

I'll tell him about it. I don't think he wanted the whole book though,just that one tune.
The book is $16.95 plus shipping to the UK would be expensive.

Does anyone have "Howes 1000 Jigs and Reels"? Would you be willing to scan that one tune and send it to me or would that be......a copywrite issue?

Imapickn, I don't know if either of these are what you are looking for, but there is sheet music for the "Delaware light dragoons quick step" at:

http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin....kText=0 (http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=mussm&fileName=sm2/sm1845/050000/050350/mussm050350.db&recNum=0&itemLink=D?mussm:2:./temp/~ammem_AQ4c::&linkText=0)

And another for the "Boston light dragoon's quickstep" at:

http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin....kText=0 (http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=mussm&fileName=sm2/sm1852/170000/170120/mussm170120.db&recNum=0&itemLink=D?mussm:1:./temp/~ammem_hEz9::&linkText=0)

Maybe you could send these links to your friend if they can read the sheet music to see if they are close? They could also spend some time searching around that site to see if the right one is there.
