Kansas City Hornpipe

Postby IainMcLean » Sun Mar 16, 2008 9:15 pm

Anyone got the dots for the tune called "The Kansas City Hornpipe"? There's a Fred Morrison video on good old you tube of him playing it. Seems like a nice bluesy tune but I've never heard of it before so I'm wondering if it's one from his own mind where all the reel-pipe shenanigans come from!

I live in Kansas City and even I haven't heard of it. :-)

And here's my abc rendering of the tune played the 1st time around. I'm popping the f notes in the 2nd part to get the f natural to f sharp slur. My wife's in love with this tune already.

Hey Bill ... Nice one!

I came across the tune and it stirred memories of Davy Spillane playing with Bella Fleck years back. Bluesy and bouncy.

A nice simple melody - something Fred does well but he often gets carried away with the cutting edge stuff.
