Puddleglum’s Misery

Here’s a real screwball tune by John Kirkpatrick http://www.johnkirkpatrick.co.uk/home.asp that’s a lot of fun. I’ve known it for years but I don’t play it at sessions often. It’s a closet fav of some of my friends, very fun to play.

The Silver Chair

Well, he obviously must’ve been reading C.S. Lewis when he wrote this one! =D

And in case that previous comment didn’t make any sense, I’m referring to "The Silver Chair" from C.S. Lewis’ children’s series, The Chronicles of Narnia. Puddleglum is one of the main characters in that book, a marsh-wiggle in fact. 😉

Bob Walser recorded it on Landlocked, and paired as the second tune it with Captain’s Hornpipe.
