The Medicine Lodge Treaty

Composed by Lindsay Davidson
 Medicine lOdge treaty music

The E doublings are very open.
The throws take half of the preceding note for low G every time.
 All of the gracenotes and strikes are the same length and are quite heavy. These evenness of interpretation give a certain simplicity to interpretation and playing.
In the second part the throws and high A doulings have the same rhythm as each after following the beat. The strikes are lighter than elsweehere.
List carefully to the penultimate bar in each part at the quarter speed. The rhythmical pattern repeats and thi sis the kind of pattern that can help you in many tunes in many contexts.
