Ok so I have been going to this weekly jam.  After hearing this song played almost every week and trying to find an online video, sheet music, anything about it since that first week... I find out it is not called Tumbling River but Cumberland River!!

I didn't even think to ask the first few notes during the jam.  I was laughing so hard at myself!!

I am actually getting to where if I know the first few notes and can hum the tune can figure out the rest of the song!!  When I slow the video down the sound is distorted and I can not make out the first few notes.  Does anyone have any info on this music?

Thanks in advance!!

Great stuff Schaick. Thanks for the post.

Had to check out the river after seeing this. Looks like a beautiful river.

Kind of related but not....
I someday hope to do the Americas Great Loop with a sailboat. Lot's of rivers..... Probably a different boat from what we have today as I don't know if we can live onboard this one for a half year. :)
The boat has to be demasted and re-masted (not sure the correct term) at one point but the idea still really interests me.

I love rivers. In fact, I love rivers, lakes and oceans... LOL
Nice pictures Barry. You are fortunate to have that view.
How is the fishing now?

@Barry Very nice!!  Do you ever have trouble with flooding?  But more importantly do play Cumberland River?

Old Hickory Lake was where, "Johnny Cash" lived. I was there twice back in the '70's'.

Somewhere I have some pics of the famous, "One Piece At A Time" Cadillac.
