King Jim/Thanxty Al Stanley

© Gordon Bok, BMI

 

Commemoratives.  King Jim is James Stewart of Saint John, NB: poet, composer and co-conspirator.  Al Stanley is a musician and blacksmith from Prince Edward Island.  This is my thank you for Al's teaching me Carolan's Concerto, long ago (He wrote a thanxty for this thanxty that I still can't play…).

            When the arrangement settles down, it will probably be Cindy's fault…

 

GB: nylon 6-string                           C: steel 6-string 

 

 

This tune is recorded on the album Neighbors and on the cassette February Tapes Vol II
