'Shenandoah' is based on the popular American folk tune of the same name. The original work chant, in the age-old tradition of the 'sea song', evokes the power of the mighty Missouri River. A popular folk tune is interleaved with original melodies, harmonies and counterpoint to form an entirely new hybrid. Still, for the player, the spirit and power of the traditional tune should guide interpretation of the music. The performer is encouraged to look carefully at the reasons for fingerings and markings,and decide whether they are suitable for his or her given technique. The player can either play the chords literally as written, or explore a variety of strumming effects from various folk traditions.
