Camel Hump

This tune is by Danny Noveck.
It’s on Call of the Wild / Wild Asparagus and on Best of Wild Asparagus / Wild Asparagus.

Key

Actually in B aeolian.

Key

I agree, but I couldn’t find "B Aeolian" in the drop down list, and didn’t think I would be allowed to leave it blank. I looked for this tune for a long time without finding it, and now it’s also on John Chamber’s site, as well, but in a different key (he calls it Em) and a couple of differences. I agree with the dotted quarter + eighth notes, but disagree with his tone differences. I think I got the key right for Wild Asparagus’ version, but I wouldn’t swear to it.

Key

The recording of it on Call of the Wild has it starting a fifth lower (E on the D string). If I knew how to transpose the ABC’s I’d fix it. (and I’m going to try).

E minor version

Here’s the abc’s for the e minor version:
