A lovely little fling composed by one of our regular contributors here, Dick Glasgow, alias ‘ptarmigan’. I’ll leave it to him to elucidate on origin, inspiration and memories… I only hope people are actually getting to dance to this, and musicians to play it for dancers… 😎

- another option for that first lead in and the dip to B,

& other options ~ that descending triplet reduced to |: A>F |\

& the usual for the B-part, meaning ~ B>c |\ - or - (3ABc |\

Logan’s Fling, X:2

To my Scottish ears this was a really nice tune, but it just wanted a but more angularity about it. So I’ve taken the liberty of tweaking it just a little to give it that. It feels more Scottish now, so I hope Ptarmigan doesn’t mind!
