Hi Stephen,

thanks a lot for your comment....

I did some research in the internet about the composer of this tune. Maybelle Carter plays this tune, but it seems to be true that she did not compose it. Internet says, this tune must have been compsoed before she was born....

Well, since all I had found was, that the composer is unknown, I took that for the description to my video.....

greetings from Germany
Gerhard

Very nice Gerhard!

Very clean playing, right on the beats. There are some tricky right-hand picking moves in there!

Well done!

- Glenn

I believe this was written by James Scott in 1921. Also, well played, thanks for posting!

Sounds right. The Carters were well know for taking traditional melodies and songs and "making" them their own.

According to Tim Sparks (who has a Trufire lesson on the tune https://truefire.com/acoustic-guitar...ory-rag-/v9428) the Scott tune is a different song by the same name. He also supports Gerhard's belief that origin of the tune is unknown. Here is what he says about it:

"I first heard Victory Rag played by Mother Maybelle Carter on the Flatt and Scruggs' Martha White Biscuit show in the late 1960's. I always thought she had written it, but a few years ago a friend pointed out that it was in fact the last published rag by the great ragtime composer James Scott, published in 1917. I subsequently found that Scott's Rag is a different tune. After some more research, I found that in 1963 Maybelle Carter told the New Lost City Ramblers she learned it from a guitar player at an Old Dominion Barn Dance in Richmond, Virginia in the early 1950's. The song was also recorded by Mike Seeger of the New Lost City Ramblers and Sam Mcgee. A performance of Sam Mcgee can be seen on Stephen Grossman's "Legends of Traditional Fingerstyle Guitar," Vestapol Videos. You can also view clips of Sam and Kirk McGee and Maybelle Carter fingerpicking guitar renditions of "Railroad Blues" and "Wildwood Flower" on YouTube. The provenance of this tune remains a bit of a mystery to me."

Bravo sir.

Some music just brings a smile to my face, and not only the music, but the flawless execution of it, brought a veritable beam to this curmudgeonly face.

👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👍👍

Hi,
the piano score of James Scottīs composition is available in the internet. It is the same title - but a total different piece.
