That Lonesome Road

Music by James Taylor

"The Lonesome Road" is a 1927 song with music by Nathaniel Shilkret and lyrics by Gene Austin, alternately titled "Lonesome Road", "Look Down that Lonesome Road" and "Lonesome Road Blues." It was written in the style of an African-American folk song. The lyricist and composer were both extremely popular recording artists. Gene Austin estimated he sold 80 million records, and Nathaniel Shilkret's son estimated his father sold 50 million records. Joel Whitburn lists recordings by Austin, Bing Crosby, Ted Lewis, and Shilkret (see list of recordings below) as being "charted" at Numbers 10, 12, 3 and 10, respectively. There are no reliable sales figures that can be used to verify or dispute any of the estimates above.

Steve Kaufman : Band In A Book: Bluegrass Vocals

The idea here is to help coordinate the pickers so you all have solos to play and they can be played in the same key. What a concept - a "Band in the Book". Within these pages you will find solos for the entire band: lead guitar, rhythm guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and bass. The mandolin and fiddle share the same tunings so their solos are just written once for both. If you are just starting out and you are having difficulty-finding solos for your level - look no more. These solos are written for the beginner level student assuming you can already play a few simple solos or lead breaks. This series will help you to learn solos on multiple instruments, help organize ensemble play, help develop a steady sense of timing and give you hours of enjoyment as well.

Songlist: Introduction to the Band in a Book, Understanding the Tablature, Banjo Chords and Tips, Guitar Chords and Tips, Mandolin Chords and Tips, Performance Notes, Banks of the Ohio, Footprints in the Snow (Banjo, Lead Guitar, and Rhythm Guitar), Footprints in the Snow (Mandolin/ Fiddle and Bass), John Hardy, John Henry, That Lonesome Road, That Lonesome Road, New River Train (Banjo, Lead Guitar, and Rhythm Guitar), New River Train (Mandolin/ Fiddle and Bass), Roll On Buddy, Roll On (Banjo, Lead Guitar, and Rhythm Guitar), Roll On Buddy, Roll On (Mandolin/ Fiddle and Bass), Sitting On Top of the World, Tom Dooley, Way Downtown (Banjo, Lead Guitar, and Rhythm Guitar), Way Downtown (Mandolin/ Fiddle and Bass), Worried Man Blues (Banjo, Lead Guitar, and Rhythm Guitar), Worried Man Blues (Mandolin/ Fiddle and Bass), Steve Kaufman's Instructional Materials, Steve Kaufman's Listening Materials, Some of Steve's Goodies, About the Author
