I feel like I face some music notation questions that you lesser pianists don’t have to deal with.

My current piano routine is I play maybe 15 minutes a day. I wander over to the corner where I keep the heaps and stacks of ragtime sheet music that I have either collected or inherited from my brother, pick out a couple and noodle through them. No skills are being developed, but I find it very pleasant and relaxing.

But I do run into some advanced music notation that I have trouble interpreting. How would you all deal with the notation right before the first repeat on the first page of this one?

I also defy you to read the dedication line above the title out loud…

MOO!

Josef Fuchs was either a theologian or a violinist. Couldn’t be the violinist since he was only 10 years old when this piece was published.

References to Swanee River and Turkey in the Straw are noted. Did not see any famous violin melodies.

Pretty much how I played it, except for the cow noises.

For many years, I owned a small cylindrical device, about half the size of a soup can. Say, the size of an evaporated milk can. It had a picture of a cow on the outside. The top was a piece of perforated metal. My parents bought it for me at a Stuckey's somewhere between Mississippi and Orlando.

If you turned it over and then turned it back rightside up, it made the most mournful moo-ing cow sound you've ever heard. When my ex-husband and I had our trio, one of our standard songs was "Riders in the Sky." He played the guitar. Our friend played the bass. I played the cow.

My most glorious moment was making the cow can moo between "Yippee-ki-yay" and "Ghost riders in the sky." If I was really feeling it, I'd also make it moo when the mighty herd of red-eyed cows came up the cloudy draw.

The moo-ing mechanism was apparently some kind of rubber bladder not unlike a whoopee cushion, and they seem to have a life of about thirty years, because my cow can eventually gave up the ghost. The Stuckey's website says that the nearest location to you is in Kansas, so you'd better get driving.

Good luck!

And Wikipedia knows all.

Everything you always wanted to know about a moo can.

Apparently the Beastie Boys stole my idea and used a moo cow in one of their recordings.
