JAPANESE BREAKDOWN. American, Country Rag. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A country ragtime piece recorded on 78 RPM by the Georgia based biography:Scottdale String Band who played on the radio in the 1930's, featuring the mandolin as the lead instrument. The group (or the record company) was apparently attempting to cash in on the success of their previously issued "Chinese Breakdown." At the time of their December, 1930, recording of "Japanese Breakdown" in Atlanta, Georgia, the group consisted of leader Marvin Head (gtr.), Barney Pritchard (gtr.), and Charlie Simmons (banjo-mandolin)
