A ripper of a tune and I’m very surprised I can’t find it on the Interweb, even using John Chambers’ search engine. The triplets on A in the first couple of bars represent a tremolo, I think. These repeat in the same position in the A part throughout the recorded performance.

My first post on The Session and hope to contribute some more. I’ve been lurking and searching the site and find it a very useful tool for indexing my discs. The abc and sheet music helps enormously in recognising tunes.

Congrats on your first posted tune. It is a ripper indeed. Thanks for including a suggested chord progression. There’s been a bit of chatter on this topic discussion wise.

I look forward to your future posts.

P. e-S.
Cool screen name.
