Saint Anne’s Reel

This version is a little bit different in that it has developed a little ‘twist’ along the way - my doing :)

The A part normally goes from D to Em at bar2/bar3, so I though D to G would make a nice little change. Also, a little modulation from D to Bb just for one bar was a nice little surprise, I thought.

For the B part, that’s evolved a bit too, as you can see. If the high C# is problematic for fiddlers, it’s quite easy just to play the whole tune in G instead of D. Maybe that would add a bit of mellowness …
