Re: Herbert The Sherbert

I don’t think it’s trad. Irish but contemporary English melodeon tune

Herbert The Sherbert, X:2

Heard this one at a session recently. English Jig, and the C Part is from Clive Williams.

Herbert The Sherbert, X:3

Slight variant on the C Part, and change of some chords.

Herbert The Sherbert

Can be played and reminds of an Italian Tarantella 🙂
