Six comments

This is a really sweet waltz, composed by Radvan Markus & Petr Košumberský, the flute player and guitarist of the Czech band Dún an Doras. Transcription is based on their playing on their *Sweet & Sour* album. Some really great playing on that disk!

From the band website:
"A Leaning Tower, although not in Pisa, but in Prachovské skály, a region in Eastern Bohemia known for its picturesque sandstone formations."

Yes, a lovely little waltz…

We’d love to vacation in Prachovské skály, added to our wish list. 😉

Oops. Waltz. Jig. 3/4. 6/8. My bad. 😛
