Bill Monroe’s Gold Rush

Today at the meeting of the Bay Area Fiddlers in Dunedin, we played Roxanna Waltz by Bill Monroe. I haven’t written that one out yet. But I do have a popular hoedown, Gold Rush.

I wrote this tab chart years ago. But, I haven’t used it much in my teaching. It’s not an easy tune. Intermediate to advanced, is how I’d call it.

Even though I enhanced it a bit, it still could use some work on esthetics. But it’s accurate enough for playing.

And, of course, the pdf file for Gold Rush.

And, by the way, we also played Lamp Lighter’s Hornpipe. Anson’s choice and a synchronistic one for me.
