SALEM GALLOP. AKA Salem Galopede. USA, Western/Pacific. Galop (2/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDCDC. This is from a manuscript dated 1880, which was in the possession of William Henry Ehlen (1876-1945), who played violin and cornet in a dance band, and was a descendant of a prominent musical family in the Aurora colony in Oregon's Willamette Valley. The tune appears in the Joseph Sedlak manuscript with the title of Salem Galopede; several of the tunes in the 1880 manuscript seem to have been copied from the Sedlak manuscript.
