"The Way of Iron."
Uploaded on Oct 9, 2016
Now as opposed to a transcription (which most of my "arrangements" actually are), a true arrangement begins solely with a melody and a set of chords. It is the arranger's job to compose the rest of the piece. I honestly don't know what compelled me to arrange "I've Been Working on the Railroad" except that it could be done and I had nothing better to do. Once I started though, some striking patterns began to emerge ... leading to the formatting of the piece as a march. In case anyone is wondering, the title is simply a literal translation of the French chemin-de-fer, i.e. railroad.
For the purpose of organization this piece will be grouped with the rag transcriptions for band.
