Alabama Gal combines the classic tune—originally known as Buffalo Gals, but who in Alabama wants to sing that?—with The Banjo and Morte! Lamentation by America's first rock star (aka composer), Louis Moreau Gottschalk (1829-1869). It includes opportunities to learn about counting sixteenth notes, singing arpeggiated triads, changing tempos, and the wild story of Louis Moreau Gottschalk. If you have a young choir and want to show off a fantastic accompanist, Alabama Gal is guaranteed to bring down the house!
