Naming of this tune

I’m a USCG licensed boat captain (to 200 GT), and I awoke from a dream that triggered this tune. I think/play it more as a hornpipe (i.e. with a good bit of swing). Hope you enjoy it.

Hi Capnmike, thanks for posting!

Please make a note of the FAQs for this site:
"Can I submit my own compositions?
Well… The Session isn’t really intended for that. If you do post one of your own compositions, then you must do your "penance", so to speak, by balancing each original composition with about five trad tunes."

Re: The Capn’s Dream

This sounds similar to "The Sailor’s Wife" Mazurka, which for some reason, has been removed from the list of Mazurkas. Good thing I made a copy of the tune in Crescendo.
