GUEST,Pete Peterson Chord Req: When The Roses Bloom In Dixieland (11) RE: Chord Req: When The Roses Bloom In Dixieland 11 Sep 06


I've just listened to the Carter Family recording (Bear Family set CD 2) about three times. I can't hear the 2 chord. M.Ted-- can we agree that the 2 chord is not in the guitar part, meaning that it's in the voices if it's there at all? (Next step would be to figure out the notes sung on the two notes of "sweetest" by the group)

BTW according to my tuner, the song is in Bb. Maybelle is certainly playing C shapes, which means she tuned her guitar down a full tone to play in Bb, rather than playing G capoed up 3.

I am fairly embarrassed to realize how much I straightened out the timing before teaching the song to the rest of our band, and also altered "coming BACK to you" into "coming HOME to you." Oops.
