    Nope not me playing just found it on youtube. IT would make a good lesson if John has time. I would like to have the sheet music for this. On the other hand I do have a couple of Gliga violins that this guy is playing. They are nice sounding fiddles.

    Kenny Baker and Blaine Sprouse fiddle it in B Flat (2 flats) and the fellow playing in the video that Joe posted is playing it in A (3 sharps). Myself, I just prefer Bb, but I guess there’s almost as many open strings either way.

    I’ll work on it Steve and play it here soon. I just took a few minutes and figured out a nice break for it in the key of G. I figured it would be a lot easier for a lot of the jammers on Friday nights. Better that than scare ’em off with Bb. I like playing it in Bb and at some point I’ll record it there, too.

    Stay tuned. I’m busy for a while, but I’ll get to it because it’s a fun tune.

    Have a great day. (I miss Cricket) :(

    Thanks Fred ,  guitars players can always use the capo on the third fret and play B flat in the G chord ! I’m looking forward to you playing it ! I miss Cricket too !

    Hey Steve, for me, it’s actually easier to fiddle in Bb than it is in G.

    Here’s the arrangement I made yesterday in the key of G. Feel free to re-arrange all you want, or make a tablature out of it. It really works out well. It’s just that it actually seems easier to play in Bb for me.

    Do you have the notation for Bb Fred?  It is originally written in Ab.  It sounds a little odd in Ab because of the open string harmonics, until you add the chords with double stops, and then it becomes magical.  I’d like the Kenny Baker version in Bb if you have it….I can’t for the life of me decipher those chords Kenny plays….. Rodger

    You can watch Blaine playing it here, but I still can’t figure out the chords…

    I don’t have a Bb version written out, Rodger, and certainly not as beautiful as Blaine plays it. I wish I did.  But, I do play at it in Bb and enjoy it better than my version in G. I may get motivated at some point to learn it and write it out the way Blaine performs it and/or the way Kenny does it. It really is gorgeous either way!

    I’ll see if I can find time to write out my version from Blaine’s version that I posted to the lion’s den earlier this year…or was it last year?

    Maybe a video? might be quicker…

    I spent some time trying to document those chords, and can’t crack the nut.  Even watching Blaine play them….I can’t figure them out.  Close, but it’s just not there.  I think  Blaine plays it as close as possible to the Kenny Baker version….at least he said that was his goal.

    Rodger: Here are some of the double stops found in the tune. I have not arranged them in any special order. Just play each chord and you may recognize where it fits in the tune. I apologize for not having the time to transcribe this piece but when Dave plays his video for you, it’ll all make sense. He probably knows a ton more double stops, too.

    I just threw a bunch of chords up there on the top staff and put the fiddle tab on the neck below. :)

    Note: You may be able to right click and open the image in a new tab and have it appear larger.

    OK Fred…Thanks for the trouble.  I wish I had my theory from college days, that would sure help to figure it out.  But it all just evaporated in the empty space up there….
    I guess if I can’t duplicate it I’ll have to settle for my own arrangement.

    Frederick and Fiddlewood:

    “Pass Me Not” sheet music in different keys:

    (1)  Scroll  down the list of songs.  (2) click on key box.  (3) sheet music appears.

    Hey thanks Nancy for the link. I looked at the link and I haven’t tried playing off the sheet music yet. I guess it was written for piano maybe?

    If you choose “Pass Me Not” in the key of B-flat on the table; it appears to be the same beginning measures that Fiddlewood downloaded.

    Thanks, Nancy. That person went to a lot of work to provide a nice free site full of useful information. Thanks for the link.

    I transcribed my arrangement in G from one in a hymn book in Ab. Mine is very similar, too. The trouble with my transcription is that the violin double stops are mostly the top two parts of piano four-part gospel-type piano that I adjusted for fiddle. The pretty double stops Kenny and Blaine used are somewhat different and have some interesting embellishments added for “taste”.

    Here’s my first feeble attempt at it:

    It takes about one duokazillion passes thru the video to get an idea as to what they’re doing and I usually tire before reaching even halfway through. :)

    Joe, until some better instruction comes along here is a video on my version of the Verse…Mostly taken from Blaine Sprous’ version in the video above.

    OK Fred, if it only takes a duokazillion passes, then I shouldn’t be discouraged I guess.  I was thinking it might take a little longer.

    My problem is also the different sounding fiddles.  No two fiddles sound alike, and to my ear the sound is so different that even the same notes have a different flavor, especially when blending in a chord.

    Joe, Here is a video on my version of Blaine’s version of the chorus. Sorry for any difficulties, I’m not a pro or an instructor but this should get you started…
