Jane and Josey
Arr. Carrie Lane Gruselle
Highland/Etling String Orchestra
"Little Liza Jane" and "Dance Josey" are American folk tunes abounding with energy and vitality. In this arrangement, these companion songs give young string players an opportunity to develop pizzicato, a variety of bowing styles, and syncopation in the comfortable key of D major. Minimal shifting occurs in the bass part; otherwise, the arrangement stays in first position.
