Comments on: Bonaparte Crossing the Rhine (Ador) https://slowplayers.org/2014/05/07/bonaparte-crossing-the-rhine-ador/ The Best ITM Tune-Learning Tutor Tue, 28 Sep 2021 16:37:14 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.8.2 By: Rick Davis https://slowplayers.org/2014/05/07/bonaparte-crossing-the-rhine-ador/#comment-240092 Fri, 07 Jun 2019 14:59:09 +0000 http://slowplayers.org/?p=1211#comment-240092 In reply to Eddie.

Thanks for this great site. I think what Judy means is that no sharp should show on the staff at the beginning (the signature), since the tune is in Ador, which, like its second-cousin C, has no sharps or flats. The F# that appears in the B part is an accidental, and would normally be shown only on that particular note, But when you show the F# at the beginning of the treble clef, you are designating the tune as being in G major (or ITS second-cousin, E minor). I love the tune and appreciate your explanations re: the confusion around the title variants.

Hey Judy, I’ve updated the description due to your comment. I looked on Andrew Kuntz’s site after reading your comment, and updated the description above accordingly. The Old Time tune “Bonaparte Crossing the Rocky Mountains” is essentially the same tune without the F# and so is presented in C. However, the chords are the same and the tune resolves on an A rather than a C, and the Am chord resolves better.

I played it with the F natural, and that works, of course. It doesn’t sound right to me, but that’s just because it isn’t the way I learned it. There is just the one F# in the B part, so it could be a variation?
