Anybody happen to know where to find the music for The Lion Sleeps? I have tried aounding it out but I am kinda dumb when it comes to that.

Thanks,

If it will work on the pipes I'd be interested also.

repeat! :shrug: I found the mp3 file over on Ringo's site and really liked it. So I figure if I can learn the music then maybe I can get those bums I play with to learn it as well. :eek:

Ok, here's the rest:

F - - - G' - - - F - - - E - - -
a wimoweh, a wimoweh, a wimoweh, a wimoweh, :||(4X) or ad nauseam.

Then over all that mess, the Kingston Trio put in this catchy countermelody (which Disney also used)

A' - - - - - A' G' A' G' F D A - - -

A' G' A' G' F D A - - - - -


You could use double echos for the "wimoweh" part, or hornpipe shakes if you want to razzle-dazzle the audience.

I played this at Disneyland with pipes, sax, tuba, and djembe- awsome. The whole thing works great on pipes, including the instrumental interlude. We just stole it off an old Doo-Wop album...
