Thanks javivr

A typically ‘square’ Quebecois 4/4 reel; un Quat’ Quat’ assez Carré, not Quite as old as Cartier’s old bones and influence on ‘Kanata’. Nor is this Reel as Recent as this Rediscovery:

thanks for this one Javivr. I play a hohner club 2+1/2 row in D/G and bar 4 of the ‘A’ music is good for giving me practise in using top g#. As well as being a super tune to play. It flows nicely on the D/G but I cannot play it as fast as Jean Carignan yet. good cross-rowing tune as well.
