Five comments

Gremlin

Composed by piano player Brad Fremlin. The A Part is a bit dark, and leads well into the B Part. Love the B Part. This tune is easy enough on a C-whistle, octave jumping those low-A’s works.

X1 is some combination of Richard Wood’s and Fiddler 3’s settings.

Alycia Putnam has a few more variations (ornamentation) on her record as well.

It’s played rather quickly on all three of these recordings.

Gremlin, X:2

A few minor variations, mostly from the two previous recordings cited.

The pick-up note into the A Part could also be a low-C, try it out.

Perhaps to a lesser degree, "AD^C D2E" may work in the 2nd bar of the B Part, instead of "ADC D2E", or, the original "ADD D2E".

Gremlin, X:4

X4 is close to my setting for the tune.

Have also updated each of X1, X2, and X3, as follows:
- X1 is Richard Wood’s setting. He plays a 3.5 bar tag/bridge each time, from the B part to the A part.
- X2 is The Fiddler 3’s setting. They don’t play the bridge part, and it’s probably better for a session to drop it.
- X3 is Alycia Putnam’s setting.
