I wrote it on the beach.

This is a really good tune Gian Marco…I’ve finally found something to go with the Tongadale Reel. Thanks!
Appropriate name too.

Wow, leave it to a flute player to pen a great fiddle tune! This is a blast to bow. It’s instantly in my bag of tunes.

Reminiscent of the Bus Stop Reel, but more energetic. The two would make a nice set, ending with Sand in the Whistle.

It’s a beautiful tune, but i prefer the little change in the tune this :

|:EG|A2cB AE~E2|ABcB AF~F2|FAcA FA^cA|GBdB ^Gedc|
A2cB AE~E2|ABcB AF~F2|FAcA GBdB|cBAG A2:|

What do you think Gian Marco

Change

mandol man, you suggest FAcA FA^cA instead of FAcA ^FAcA in the 3rd bar. The c# is not a bad idea, but I prefer to keep the F#.
The mix of my and your 3rd bar is FAcA ^FA^cA.
What do you think mandol man

The more I play this tune the more I like it. It is a really good reel Gian Marco and will certainly find its way into the Herschel session very soon. Thank you. (Your reward will be in heaven…if there is one..to offer money would be vulgar)!

Yes, it sound good, now !!

Geoff, I hope to get my reward as late as possible!

such a nice tune 🙂
