The Gathering Storms

From the 1996 recording of the same name by Ross Kennedy and Archie McAllister. I’m not 100% sure, but I think McAllister may have composed it.

C/C# box

Thanks for posting this Nigel. It fits my C/C# box well. I’m in the middle of searching suitable ‘Dm’ tunes at present to play on it. In bar 1 of the B music I am substituting top ‘a’ instead of top ‘d’. To me it sounds better and is an easier & more fluid note to play. Top ‘d’ is somewhat thin and insipid (on my box that is).
