The Comfy Crane

From the playing of Saltfishforty. Dark, slow feeling tune.

In the third bar of the A Part, the have an ornament on the second B. Not exactly sure how to notate it, though the general idea is "EGB ~B2G". Have simplified X1 a bit by leaving this out.

Some phrases in the B Part bears resemblance to the Gmin part in Le 24 Juin (https://thesession.org/tunes/3358 ), albeit, in jig-time.

Tried it in a few keys. Gmin sounds best to my ears, and Amin/Dmin/Emin all work as well.

The Comfy Crane, X:2

A few variations.

Re: The Comfy Crane

Nice little tune. Suggestion: the G-flat would be better written as an F-sharp.

Cheers
