Sutton Mutton

cbwimcbwim ✭✭✭
Am looking for any written transcription of "Sutton Mutton" as played by Eddie Lang.

There is one I found online at leyoy.free.fr/Suton/sutton.pdf but its in a strange key with 5 flats and a strange clef with C being the bottom line and D being the top. My copy of Finale can't handle the scanning and conversion without me having to do a whole bunch of editing. The tab is also worthless as it requires this tuning: Bb F C G A D

I am looking for one written in he normal clef and tab with normal tuning!

    Hey, cbwim, sorry for the delay in responding.

    "Sutton Mutton" is not actually an Eddie Lang tune. It was written and recorded by Carl Kress, a contemporary of Lang's who did indeed play the strange tuning you mention. (It is a sort of hybrid banjo tuning, since Kress was a former banjoist.)

    I hesitate to tell you the bad news, but here goes: if you want to play "Sutton Mutton" in standard guitar tuning, then you are probably going to have to make up your own arrangement...

    I live in a little tourist town called Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada, which is about twenty miles north of Niagara Falls.

    If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.
