Jakob’s Frolics

In a flash of inspiration after watching Wolfgang Rihm’s utterly bleak opera Jakob Lenz in London at the weekend, this happy little jig came to me (as an antidote!)- could have given old Jakob a few moments respite from his descent into blackness. Hoping to upload to soundcloud when it finally lets me do it - does it sound like something else?

you need to sort the ABC there are some dubious leaps involving the note of C

maybe this was what you meant to put:

Also, try to now submit 5 traditional tunes, this site is not intended to be a place to deposit solely self penned tunes

Thanks D.J.F - now corrected - just getting used to this ABC notation. Will submit the trad tunes as requested over the next month!

Where’s me clogs?

:-D Nice one D.J.F. Sinead, it’s in our FAQs here, law as laid down by our webmaster Jeremy… Don’t forget another convention, laying it out in 4 bar lines/phrases, like so ~ but this time with me enjoying your little ditty for a spell ~

" ~ but this time with me enjoying your little ditty for a spell ~ " and it taking me down a few minor side streets and alleyways… ;-)

AAAA! The bit went missing again ~ "me ‘having’ enjoyed your little ditty for a spell" :-/ ;-)
