With Ourselves

Composed by Johnny Harling, writer of "Dusty Windowsills". This reel was mentioned in a recent discussion on favourite composers.

I’ve started playing F#s instead of Gs |~E3B FE~E2| because it sounds better.

Would you make the Low A on there just a normal A?

Be careful with your wording if you want to suggest playing this tune in a session. "Let’s…" or "Why don’t we…" is probably a bad idea. Try instead "Have you heard this nice tune? It’s called ‘With Ourselves’" :-)
