This is a tune that came out of a random noodle on my melodeon. I’ve not written a tune this way before, and am quite pleased with the results! It was, as the title suggests, written on the Summer Solstice, 2010. I’ve called it a polka, but it really is a French style bourée, albeit a syncopated one. Oh, and please be kind, it’s my first stab at using abcs properly. Enjoy the tune.

Wow you totally copied my tune naming idea well done! 😀

Whoops! Well, great minds…

are you sure this could qualify as a bourrée mandolinman? albeit a syncopated one? Mm..

There’s a hint of ‘God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen’ in it as well.
