A great slide … quirky and addictive.

Actually … I’m not sure … I think this is a better version …

Re: I’d Rather Be Married Than Left

Ha, thanks Davy (I never saw that comment). I know how to change it in the ABC headers, I meant more here on this site. Once a tune is started as one "type", I don’t believe additional settings can use a different meter.
