Side note: I went looking for “Shoot the Buffalo” online, since the only place I’ve heard it is the Wedgwood Alehouse jam, and last time I went looking I didn’t find anything. This time there were some search results, and I was excited to find out more about this tune. Turns out they were all links to my transcription. But I did find a book it might be in that the UW library has, so I’ll check that out tomorrow.
