Toward The Sun

Incredibly energetic Brian Finnegan tune. I’ve fallen in love with this one. Flook plays it in F# dorian (I think?), but I’m also including a setting transposed into B dorain (I think!) for my fellow D whistle players.

This is apparently on his CD with William Coulter, but I haven’t gotten my hands on a copy yet. I learned it from the videos of Flook’s recent performances in Moscow, and I might not have everything quite perfect. If you’re interested in hearing how it’s played (and you should be!) there’s one video linked in Reel for Rubik https://thesession.org/tunes/14043 which precedes it in the set, and the other is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-u5n7ZZPPM

Make that F# and B Aeolian!

Toward The Sun, X:3

This is the same as X:2 with the syncopation made slightly easier to read.

The second part of the song “Cherry Blossom” by Fourth Moon on their album Ellipsis.
