A hundred musicians that Rufus knows would be rolling on the floor
Just looking at this sheet music, it seems to work well
with a "key SIGNATURE of G". There are a couple of
accidentals (naturals) in bars 9 & 11, but a few
are fairly normal in interesting music.
What is interesting is that it starts with a "D" and
ends with a "G" at the start of bar 2. That seems musically
(with the ear) as if it has gone from a I to a V. But the
notes say different.
Given that the D is the fifth note in G, than this
suggests a Mixolydian mode, if I have been paying
attention to the discussion. Mixolydian G would
have "D" as the "root" note, but the scale is carved
up according to the notes in G (just starting and
ending on D).
Did I miss anything here?
I can see why this is confusing.
