78rpm Record


This tune consists of a single two-line part repeated ad nauseum. Kessinger fortunately gave it some variations, but I still find this tune to be dull and repetitive. He made frequent use of vibrato in the recording; vibrato notes are marked with a squiggly line to their left. There shouldn’t be anything too difficult here.

This tune has no comments.
