Here’s hoping this will irritate Kenny, who doesn’t care for my transcriptions anyway, having warned people away from them in the past. I try my damnedest to do justice to my sources, even if it isn’t a direct transcription from a source, and if I’m letting fly with options I try to remember to warn anyone that might give it a go. For this I couldn’t shake a straight B-part out of it. This is as it came, but I’m not sure about the barring. Is there’s something Astor Piazzolla about it? I was in the kitchen but wasn’t baking this time or preparing a meal, instead I was making a mess with compost and sand I’d collected from a hike along a nearby brook, for aloe vera pups and their ma… This just happened - - - on flute!!! Lucky for me this one flute I grabbed does a very good cross-fingered G sharp. I then took it up a step from Harmonic A minor to Harmonic B minor. Oh yes, I was also doing two trays of seeds, one the third in an every two week tray of salad greens, and a backup of flowers seeds for some madness out front.

The madness out front, a whim, digging holes in the sphagnum moss out front, looked like this from our window when my wife told the sister-in-law in Cymru/Wales and a picture was sent with the subject "In process - - -"… The sister in law wrote back - "You’d better finish that before someone crosses the ‘T’!" Here’s what it looked like from our window, the picture we’d sent her: S H I I … I was finishing it when she’d written her warning. Here, now finished, is what it looks like from the street and overhead, as intended: N H S! It’s a garden of multi-coloured flowers, that’s the intention, including sunflowers and a hell of a lot of poppies, and probably also some night scented dwarf nicotiana… It’s a celebration of admiration, appreciation and respect for all those working for and around our ‘N’ational ‘H’ealth ‘S’ervice, also with us having family who work for the NHS… True too is that both of us have had to call on it in times of need and are glad and lucky to have it there for us when needed…

Anyway, here’s a mad tune in so many ways in a response after a double shot of espresso to this damned virus - DANCE!!! Keep making music, keep dancing, keep safe, keep sane… With love from one demented ‘c’ - still alive ‘n kickin’… & planting…

Sorry for being pernickety here, Ceolachan. Should it not be "Covid-19" with a "v"?
🙂

Where did I ever do that ?

Re: Cofid-19

PS … and that’s a pretty pathetic reason for posting a tune anyway.

Re: Cofid-19

Johnny - ‘f’ pronounced as ‘v’ - Cymraeg/Welsh…a slip I came back to ‘correct’…

Dear Kenny - Hardly my real reason for posting this, but you came immediately to mind as I was doing it, including your past slam regarding my transcriptions, warning others to avoid them… But then there’s a definite difference in humour and tolerance, and I’m not surprised by your comment… C’est la vie! Always appreciative of your many positive contributions here, and the chuckles I’ve had when you get narky…

I’ll try again :

Re: Covid-19

Second thoughts. Forget it . I won’t bother you again.

Re: Covid-19

Will drop a short note, as this niggle really has little to do with this little ditty… Would it be a ‘Tangle’? No, Oops! I meant ‘Tango’?

Re: Covid-19

I have danced the Tango in Ireland… It was someone there that turned me on to the music of Astor Piazzolla…

Re: Covid-19

I enjoyed this little tune tribute(?) to the virus and am modifying it for the Mountain dulcimer - what is the composer’s name? Is it OK if I modify and share with others? Thanks.

Re: Covid-19

Quite infectious

Re: Covid-19

Catchy tune.

Too easy I know.

Re: Covid-19

😀 - LOL! Loved the comments, good cheer, welcomed! Sadly, here, we’ve lost over 30,000 now… We’ve friends and neighbours in their 70s and older who we’re keeping in touch with, have offered any help if they need it, without any hesitation, except to keep safe… We’re making a few deliveries this afternoon, just plants, some edible, some for joy, all for the pleasure of growing on…
