Cheery Groove

A great slip-jig, written by Hamish Napier for his parents, and appearing on his 2018 CD "The Railway". This seems to be a popular session tune in Glasgow.

Catchy tune, Niall.
Not that it really matters, as there are no C notes in the bare tune, but the pedant in me wonders if one sharp might be a better choice of key signature here.

Re: Cheery Groove

Agreed. Altered accordingly.
