Jambalaya

This one proved to be a toughie. One of my online students, Bob Evans, asked about this tune when he ordered. I knew I had the chart in my archives, so I said I’d send it along.

When I looked at it, I realized it was only the verse. No chorus was tabbed out. And I knew I’ve played the chorus.

Writing it took extra time because I put in the drone strings. Then, I just didn’t like what I had come up with.

I got out my fiddle and just started playing and writing. After a while I was satisfied with the results. Here they are.

And here is the pdf file for Jambalaya.

  1. Hey, great site! How about the fiddle part to George Strait’s We Really Shouldn’t Be Doing This? I have parts of it but can’t quite get it all… The sheet music I’ve found is for piano/guitar and often puts it in C major, but the original recording is in B. Doesn’t help when you’re trying to figure it out!

    1. I just listened to the tune on YouTube. The back up feel is cajun, but the break is something else. Given only a few bars to fill, the fiddler plays as many notes as possible, almost. Interesting, but quite different from the back up. Which part are you after, is my question.
