To the Edges

By Andy Cutting.
I honestly could not believe this tune was not already on here, it’s pretty much a classic among the English folk world. Apparently it was written in honour of a bed & breakfast somewhere that Andy went to, which, unlike all the other many B&B’s he’d been to, served enough butter at breakfast to cover both slices of toast, to the edges!! Definitely something worth a tune of this calibre, I’d say.

It should be played at a fair pace, about 200bpm-ish. Here’s a good video for learning it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=za_6G_Cs6KM


I’ve got a brilliant video on Facebook of the man himself playing it, so if you know Andy Cutting or myself on Facebook, you’ll find it! I’m not putting it on Youtube though.

Awesome, cheers for posting!
