MacArthur Road Sheet Music

MacArther Road

Sound Files: Fast Slow

Reel in E major by Dave Richardson. I use third position for the C#s in the B part, because it's hard to get it in tune with just an extension.


  1. What is the bowing pattern for this song? Are all the 8th notes slured?

  2. Hmm, it's not quite that straightforward. For one thing, I improvise my bowings, they change each time I play a tune but are mainly based on the Georgia shuffle and the modified Georgia shuffle. I put some exercises for those bowing patterns in the intermediate A Major warm ups. Meanwhile, I'll see if I can write out a typical bowing for this tune and post it. -Megan

  3. Thank you. The bow exercises might help. I had tried to play it, but felt like my bow got mixed up somehow, and I had to stop.
