Money Musk (4)
Back to Money Musk (4)
MONEY MUSK . American, Reel. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle) AABB'CC'. The opening three bars are similar to J. Scott Skinner's "Millhills." The first strain is irregular, having nine measures, the last of which is in 2/4 time. Whatever proclivities to "Money Musk (1)" the antecedents to this tune may have had, it is unrecognizable in this version, although "Money Musk (4)" retains some rhythmic similarity.
