Six comments

Real Name?

The name ‘Way Out Yonder’ is, I think, and invention of one A Irvine. Is there a traditional name?

I feel as though I want to hear an L-part - it’s too short.

The ABC would almost pass for an DNA sequence, except that they aren’t quite the right sort of letters 🙂
Shouldn’t this tune be in Emin rather than Gmaj?

Dow, I think the structure of this tune is such that if you learn the first 4 or 5 parts you’ll be able to improvise further parts ad infinitum as you go along, it’s basically only notes covering a six-note range. Your problem solved!

Dow, just to be a bit sad, the number of possible parts using just the 6 notes of part A is about,
22,452,257,707,354,557,240,087,211,123,790,000,000
