The Popcorn

Adapted from the Brattleboro VT-based band Nightingale. They recorded this tune twice, slightly different each time, so I put them together

The Popcorn, X:2

This is supposed to be B Phrygian - my girlfriend and me stumbled across this setting while toying around with the melody a bit since E major is a devil on the pipes. In the end we just took out three sharps and liked what we got =P

Re: The Popcorn

X:1 sounds like the Boyne Hunt’s unknown cousin in the key of E.
