Default Seeking "Rogue's March" for GHB

"Rogue's March" is a military tune at least 300 years old used to chastise delinquent soldiers, typically when drumming them out of the regiment. The melody was to be played by fife or a simplified version by bugle. Does anyone here know where I can get the sheet music of "Rogue's March" for GHB?

There is more than one tune by that name, and many names for that tune. Probably the easiest one is the version in the 1817 army fife book, but it requires a C natural, although it's also recorded as a solo piece for a drummer in other manuals. It began as a derisory piece to drum prostitutes out of town, the version I have is called the Whore's March from William Vickers' collection from 1770. This does not require a C natural.

Is that the one on Wikipedia, Adam? If so it can be made to fit by shifting it all up one note.

It hadn't occurred to me to look on Wikipedia for sheet music, but, yes, that's it, and you are correct, it can be transposed up one note giving a C# and F#. Thanks.

A kindhearted soul sent me something to play with as a PNG file and an MP3 file. I'm playing with it now and will probably add my own spin to it. Alternating with that, I started learning how to typeset pipe tunes using BagpipeTeX.
