*Fiddler Susan Reid, who kindly provided the MP3 above, comments “This is my variation of an Irish tune. I treat it like a hornpipe with a fair amount of swing. It is in D, and begins with a little F sharp/G pick up, then a nice bowing pattern in the open A and D strings. The Cs shift from
Natural to sharp too, just to keep you on your toes.”
