This is a really nice jig, penned by Julian Sutton. Transcription based on Julian Sutton’s *Melodeon Crimes* recording.

Niice tune! I’d been thinking of transcribing it myself. I got it from Last Orders. Way too difficult on fiddle, with those octave jumps, but suprisingly nice on the whistle!

This album is a constant feature on my MP3 player - it is brilliant. I hope someone will transcribe ‘Secret garden’ - the tune that goes before ‘Taking the tent down’. It is a truly beautiful piece of music. I will keep trying to learn it in the mean time,

Great tune, just learned it on the fiddle, yes it is hard but it was worth it, i did try doing the A part in 3rd position but shiftilng up to 3rd is a bit too tricky at times
