AB reversed to BA
Exhibit 1: Traditional tune known by such titles as The Growling Old Man and Woman, The Old Man and the Old Woman, etc.
Exhibit 2: Section four of a selection "jigs" fiddled by Robin Williamson on the ISB album "Liquid Acrobat as Regards the Air", with the title given as "Grumbling Old Men".
The melodies of those two tunes seem to me to be clearly genetically related (near identical twins), with one odd little twist, which, being a beginner, it took me yonks to figger out: Williamson has reversed the A and B sections.
My question for the experts is this - did he do it:
A) because he is dyslexic;
B) because by then he had gone clear;
C) because this is sometimes done in ITM, either out of puckish mischievousness or sheer inspiration?
A curiosity, at best, but a curious one nonetheless.
Caution: this may be just another ploy to test the thread-hijacking talents of the regulars.
