Mustard Seeds ~ C: ‘c’ 8-)
A thank you to Jeremy for a generally pleasant distraction, especially in difficult times. However, I’m still trying to get to terms with the reboot, the ‘new’ mustard board. I only discovered today that by clicking on the little mustard coloured box in the upper left-hand corner I could get to that particular ‘search’ feature. I do wish it was easier to distinguish between the newly submitted tune and the newly submitted vesions. But even more missed is ~ where oh where has the old ABC search feature gone? At least with that I could tell where themes from other tunes might have entered my head and mixed with others, such as here, or if I was being possessed by something already submitted. I miss that, and I miss that page where you had all the submitted tunes in order of appearance, from the most recent at the top. And I still don’t like Times New Roman, boots on letters, or ‘serifs’, but it isn’t like they aren’t all over the place, and it’s only a minor niggle.
I love mustards, and the seeds too, especially black mustard seeds, very spicy… ;-) (What, no more smilies?) :-(
This is a delightful little jig - even at a lazy pace. Who could I thank for its origin.
I’d like to introduce this jig to our fiddle orchestra (The Donegal Fiddlers) with the inventors name if it’s available - thanks kindly.
Good ol’ ceolachan :)
When the cat’s away ~
Meow! I guess I should be purring. ;-)
I need to stop using the shorthand from ABC syntax, C:, as I understand that might cause confusion, but, for the one off ~ C: c ~ meaning this inspiration came on me as I was thinking about this site and Jeremy’s new take on Mustardia, while also exploring it and finding some frustration. Music has a lovely way of helping to calm things, as this did, coming pretty much as is and suddenly. That made me want to do an ABC search on site here, which seems to no longer be an option, and is a major frustration, as I like to do that amongst other searches in case this simple little jig were the result of just more cross wiring in my curiously wired brain. I find it strange saying ‘I composed this’ for the same reason. There wasn’t any effort involved.
I love your mention of a ‘lazy pace’ gael northey, as that’s exactly how it came to me originally, relaxed, my mind on something completely different, a kind of multi-tasking, and then realizing I was playing something I didn’t recognize, and haven’t yet managed to find it pre-existing, though I recognize bits and pieces that it shares in common with other tunes… I’m glad you like it. I enjoy playing it. The transcription was given to show some of the other ways it took me…

Another option for those final two bars…
