Bad Boy, No Biscuit

Sorry, it had to be done, *smirk*

Dedicated to…

…Zina, Jack and Yamadasan!

Deliberate references to The Temperance, The Virginia, Over The Moor To Maggie and and and…

…The Earl’s Chair, and and and…

LOL — Mark, you horrible little man…LOL I’ll never be able to learn this, it’s too much like everything else. *grin*

Does this tune sound like Craig’s Pipes? Another title is The Plagiarist, isn’t it?

(Nihuedebiru!)

I’m a bad composer, so can’t write a nice tune for you, Mark san. But I transcribed Harry Bradley’s version of The Walls of Liscarrol in the comment space recently. I give it to you. I’m sure you’ll like it.

hehehe…Touche, Yamada-san!

Yamadasan, thanks for the alternative title - I’ve added it formally!

So…, it’s already recorded by a Scottish piper.

Doesn’t matter, we can plagiarise the title too!

I think a better title would be The Plagiarist II, then.

At least "Bad Boy, No Biscuit" is not likely to have been recorded!

Oh, but you ought to put a copyright on it, Mark. *smirk*

Sounds like…

I’m not learning this one… it sounds too much like Out on the Ocean.

I was wondering if anyone would notice, Jack :

This tune wouldn’t go too well with "The cup of tea" then, if there’s no biscuit. Still, we could have "The glass of beer" instead. :-)

I Like where John’s going with this. :

I didn’t realise my tune was going to be so popular. It’s already been recorded by Tommy Peoples, Frankie Gavin and Matt Molloy amongst others :

Here’s a new idea…

Ya did a crackin job turning ‘Out on the Ocean’ into a reel, Dow… now try making it into a waltz. ;

Why don’t you give it a go, Jack? I loved the last tune of yours you posted.

Oh Jack, I’m sure you could just plagiarise the B-part as is, and do something with the A-part?!

Out on the Ocean — the waltz

Brilliant! I am truely humbled. Dow… that’s pure feckin genius.
