Emma’s slip

hey, thanks zina …
actually, i was just working on a tune for my daughter the other day (first version is mailed to a friend of mine, for comments) and guess what! i named it "emma’s hop" (also 9/8-time).
as soon as the tune is finished, i’ll post it here too.

LOL - now all we need is for someone to write a single jig called "Emma’s" and we’ll have a complete set. 🙂

Emma’s Single (But I Can’t Marry Her)

I blame this one on the Blanton Kentucky bourbon from last night’s fun, and an inspirational poke in the ribs from this thread. I read the above comments and out came this tune. It wrote itself in less than 10 minutes.

Legal disclaimers: I realize that only the first half is a single jig. What can I say? The second half wanted to come out the way it did, as a double jig. It’s also not flute friendly in this key—it came out on fiddle, so it’s in F. And I can’t post it as it’s own tune just yet—I already used up my daily quota today, so I’ll post this tomorrow as an "official" tune. Off the top of my head, I don’t think I know anyone named Emma, so all characters named in this tune are fictiitious; any similarity to persons real and living is unintended and accidental. No animals were harmed in the production of this tune.

LOL — Will Harmon, I love you to the death! ;)

You *are* going to post it as it’s own tune, aren’t you?

Tomorrow, as soon as the clock strikes midnight GMT.
