Notes: Turkey in the Straw is a traditional tune going back to minstrel days, when it had a racist title. It was one of the first tunes I worked out in melodic style, in 1963 or 1964. Hearing a tape of Bill Keith playing it helped me at that time to finalize my version, which owes a lot to him I am sure. It is a good tune from which to begin learning melodic style.
