Recording of Gene Goforth released on the album Gene Goforth: Eminence Breakdown


Goforth recorded Sally Goodin at least three times: for the Stike Up the Bow album, for the Eminence Breakdown album, and in a home video with John Hartford (available on YouTube). Of the three, I like the video version best. But this transcription is of the version from Eminence Breakdown, which is distinctive because it is in the key of G. (The other two recordings are in the more common key of A.) This shouldn’t be too difficult an arrangement of Sally Goodin; just look out for ties, which are used to achieve syncopation.
