poor lonesome boy Preserving old fiddler/composer's work (34) RE: Preserving old fiddler/composer's work 03 Feb 01

If this is about preserving a legacy in music, the best way is recorded, right? What I'm saying is forget that whole publishing route and get him to sit down with his little box and start playing every tune he can into a tape deck or even an old four track. They'll be rough as hell, but you and other disiples down the road would have an audible version of his creations to learn for as long as the cassettes hold out, and then you could record them yourselves, and so on. If this is about putting his name on his legacy, then have him do an easy copywrite of the cassettes for fear of future pirates... like mailing them to himself. I'm not sure if that's still works as a legitimate copywrite, but it's better than nothing. Either way, I'd say let him play until his fingers bleed and then learn all you can. The legacy lives on
