tunebook 144 tunes.

My initials, ‘m- r’, as opposed to ‘mister’ - from central Florida, USA.

[Apparently ‘Emir’ is a girl’s name in Gaelic, otherwise I might have adopted it (although ‘Emir’ is also a title in several Arabic cultures, essentually a high sultan- as in ‘Emirate’?); I guess I could go by ‘Roibeard’, but I usually go by ‘Bob’.]

- Occasionally stepping away from researching tunes (or finding where I poached it from, is more like it) to struggle through a transcription, write a tune or actually practice/rehearse.
