Cat on the Stairs aka Tabby’s Revenge

This is a tune I wrote a couple of weeks back. I play it as a fast hornpipe, almost at reel speed. It contains a few familar runs so should be fairly easy to play.

The title comes from the habit of one of my cats’ to sit on the stairs, either to try and trip up anyone who is going up or down, but also as a good attacking position to bat either of my other cats should they try to pass.

Nice work

Nice piece of work, this one. Sounds good on the harmonica, anyway, which is what I’ve got close to hand.
Might go nicely with The Old Grey Cat.
