Back to Top Accueil Blue Tail Fly "Blue Tail Fly," "De Blue Tail Fly," or "Jimmy Crack Corn" is thought to be a blackface minstrel song, first performed in the United States in the 1840s. It remains a popular children's song today. Over the years, many lyrical variants have appeared, but the basic narrative remains intact. On the surface, the song is a black slave's lament over his white master's death. The song, however, has a subtext of rejoicing over that death, and possibly having contributed to it by deliberate negligence.[1] Most versions at least nod to idiomatic African English, though sanitized, Standard English versions now predominate. Abraham Lincoln was an admirer of the tune, calling it "that buzzing song." When I was young I us'd to wait On the master and hand him his plate; And Pass down the bottle when he got dry, And brush away the blue tail fly. refrain (repeated each verse): Jimmy crack corn and I don't care, My master's gone away.

Générateur de Tablatures assistées pour Ukulélé Par niss • 1 fév, 2010 • Catégorie: Edito • Salut à tous, Une fois n’est pas coutume, mon édito ( annuel ) ne concernera pas WordPress et ses thèmes… Désolé. J’espère que vous ne m’en tiendrez pas rigueur. Cette fois-ci, je me suis attelé à créer un petit outil pour les aficionados de musique et particulièrement pour les joueurs en herbe de ukulélé. Générateur de tablatures assistées pour Ukulélé Le script vous permet de transformer des tablatures contenant des accords sous forme de lettres (Am G B7 C etc…) en tablatures avec diagrammes d’accord. Cette idée m’est venue en parcourant le superbe blog qui propose de nombreuses tablatures avec vidéo à la clé. J’ai développé cet outil assez rapidement, donc il est fort probable qu’il y ait quelques bugs, n’hésitez pas à me les faire remonter. Bon Uke!
