Anybody out there have music for Yellow Rose Of Texas with some double stops mixed in?  Preferably noting to complicated or ornate, and preferably in D major (though I can transcribe without much trouble).

A major, no double stops but could be put in quite easily.

Yikes!  How'd I miss this post?!?!

Yellow Rose of Texas is one of my favorite songs to play!  (Civil War Reenactor here! LOL)

I've actually play it a couple of different ways depending on the situation.  Whether it's for a dance, with a singer or just me by the campfire, there's a couple of ways you can do it!

From my experience, the easiest way to play it with double stops/drones is by starting on the open D.  (D, G3, G2, D D D D1 D: "There's a Yellow Rose of Texas")

It's easy to drone in that key and if you want to play it in a higher key, all you have to do is jump up and start on the open A.  

Playing in these keys also let's you jump right into "Battle Hymn of The Republic" with ease if you want to mash them together like I do!  

The 8note version Pierre listed above is okay, but I found that other musicians (guitar, banjo) like the other version better for some reason.  Easier chords, maybe?  

The most important thing to do is, have fun with it!  Make it your own!
