The Short Grass

I learnt this tune off Harmony Hill a while ago, but didn’t have a name for it until I asked someone who played it in a session last night.

Put On Your Clothes

Looks like that might be another name for it.

Short grass

nice to be able to practice a tune in C major

The a part of this tune is like a variation of the third part of ‘the slashers’, although it’s in a different key. The B-part of this tune is it’s own thing altogether. I think these two tunes are a little bit too different to be considered variations on the same tune.
