This is an Andy Cleveland tune (What!? Not traditional!? I never would have guessed!) Another fiddler brought it back from a trip to Ottawa and I’ve had a fun 6 months trying to learn it. I wanted to challenge my ABC skills so I posted the most complicated tune I know.

Gorbachev sings tractors…

When I saw the title I almost wet myself laughing! Cool tune, though…


I wrote this tune because Liz Carroll’s “Road to recovery” was proving elusive . At the time the Soviet Union was breaking up and so was my marriage 🙂 My abc skills are not good so it is a little different than I actually play it. Perhaps I’ll update it.

Wonderful tune

I really like this one! It certainly doesn’t really feel too irish, but it’s great nonetheless. We’ll see what the other guys think when I bust this one out at next session. Will probably be a good laugh!

I’d write those Db’s as C#’s for clarity…
