Good Beginner Piece.

I learned this number as a four part tune but I believe it to be a simple AB tune. I put this on my first recording project and I was ever so proud of it. Do you ever go back to those old recordings? They make your hair stand up on end and face twists in pain.

They say you are your own worst critic. I am sure you all could find something pretty awful to say about my playing back then. :)

I believe this piece is Irish. If I’m wrong - well - try it anyway.

the second two parts are well known as a shetland reel of that name. never seen the others tho

sorry meant the second and thrid part

The A part sounds a bit like Grumbling Old Man and Woman.

The original tune - Sleep Soond i da Moarnin, as the say in Shetland - is the 1st and 2nd parts, but they are usually played the other way round. Does anyone know where the other parts came from? This is one of a number of Shetland reels which are starting to crop up in sessions in Ireland.

Sleep soond ida mornin.

Aren’t the extra bits the Ali bain variations?

Sleep Soond….

As Frankie Gavin might say, it’s "fierce traditional".

Da Sleep Soond Ida Moarnin’

Obviously, the version posted here is fairly unusual one that we would never come across in any session or recording. I believe what I play is close to the standard setting.

As the Gravel Walks like ending suggests, this is not so easy on the flute. But sounds very cool anyway, and nice practice for the arpeggio.

equally fine, and brighter, in A mixolydian.
