Doberman’s Wallet

Composed by Frankie Gavin

This sounds a lot like a variation of Rose in the Heather.

Hmm, now I am confused. I am listening to "Frankie Goes to Town" and I think the tune labelled "Doberman’s Wallet" may be mislabelled.

the first part sounds a bit like Maguire’s Kick

the end

The ending of this isn’t right. The tune is more complicated than this as I hear it on cds.

My area’s way to play it

I’ve just posted the version that I’m used to hear around here, in Brittany… but oops, something I’ve done wrong in the abc of the first parts’s last bar: the midi repeats the 1) two times. Sorry for that. PZ.

Fixed up. The new session.org works much better than before. :)

The… Doberman’s Wallet…?

We all know why it’s called that, right?

Gavin, having just composed the jig, plays it for somebody and they tell him it’s lovely, a great tune - "it’s the dog’s b****cks". Well, he can hardly call it that, now, can he? So the friend says "Call it the Doberman’s wallet."

"How’s that?" says Gavin, perplexed.

"Did you ever see a Doberman from the back?"

This tune goes great with "Munster Buttermilk" (G)
