Tunes For a Solar Eclipse

Postby dbennett » Tue Aug 15, 2017 8:50 pm

Here's something I posted on our club's website:

With the total solar eclipse coming up Monday I was trying to think of some traditional/old-time tunes that might be appropriate so after thing of some off the top of my head I went through my tab books looking for promising titles. Some of these might be a stretch. Feel free to add your own:

Monday Night Waltz (The eclipse on Monday)
Keep On The Sunny Side
Rising Sun Blues (House of the)
Sunshine In the Shadows
When This Evening Sun Goes Down
You Are My Sunshine
Meet Me By the Moonlight, Alone
Black Mountain Rag (?)
Bring a Torch, Jeannette Isabella
Give Me Oil in My Lamp
Lamp Lighting Time In The Valley
Meet Me By the Moonlight, Alone
Old Aunt Jenny with Her Nightcap On
Sunshine In the Shadows
Three Blind Mice
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Wake Up Susan
What a Day That Will Be
When the Stars Begin to Fall
When This Evening Sun Goes Down
Worried Man Blues

Bad Moon Rising
Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone
Here Comes the Sun
Blinded by the Light

Don't let that last one happen for real. Please, everybody, practice safe viewing! 8) 8) 8)

Living 9 miles from totality I'm thinking in a different vein, but I don't think there are any old-time tunes about traffic and gridlock!

Here's one about the opposite of traffic and gridlock:

"Don't Fence Me In" 1934

Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
Don't fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open...
