About Black & White Rag:
Black and White Rag is a great, and commonly played and challenging fiddle contest tunes of choice. Black and White Rag was originally written as a piano tune, but has been heartily accepted into the fiddle contest repertoire. Herman Johnson played Black and White Rag in the Key of A. This lesson contains video of Herman Johnson playing Black and White Rag, a sheet music transcription taken from this video, and an audio download of the same tune.
This “lesson” is not a traditional fiddle lesson, where the tune is broken down, like most of the fiddle tune lessons on My Talent Forge. Instead, it’s a one-of-a-kind video recording of Herman Johnson playing this fiddle tune with his variations on the melody and his bowings. Herman Johnson is a legend in the fiddle contest world, AND the only 5 Time undefeated national fiddle champion to ever live. The transcription contains annotations of bowings and fingerings transcribed by Vi Wickam and Carolyn Kendrick.
