“2D or not 2D”

This little ‘exercise’ was my getting back in contact with an old and long absent friend and coming to terms with the curiosities of this particular squeeze… I hope it’s evident in the this that there was more smiling and laughter than frustration… Some folks will no doubt find irritation in the chromaticisms ~ hmmm, I won’t write what just popped into my head… :-P This little mazurka is as quirky as the source, on all counts… ;-)

The quote is more about Shakespeare than dimensions, but you’ll know I like twists, even if they are all on the level if confined to 2D…

‘quote’, I meant ‘title’, of course… :-/

I like the twists

I came looking for a particular mauzurka in D that Frankie Kennedy and Mairead O’D played on their first recording but instead stumbled upon this little "exercise" gem. I like a tune that has some degree of the unexpected without compromising flow and this mazurka has it… a joy to play! I played it on fiddle, and if my button box were a three row and had the g# I would play it on there.

Lovely to stumble across your comment Lowsong, thanks for the smile, something always appreciated. :-)
