Putin’ On The Ritz

Picked up the mandolin and the tune wrote itself. Had a vaguely Russian feel to it, so here you go!

Re: Putin’ On The Ritz

When (European) tunes in the major mode are played in minor they often sound (vaguely) Russian. Especially true of Irish polkas…
Your first part sounds like a minor version of "Campbell’s farewell to Redcastle", an iconic Scottish pipe march.

I bought a cheap Russian mandolin once but I gave it up cause of the extra notes which were put in…
