Maddy Donovan’s

By Adrian Barker out of Trouble In The Kitchen. Submitted in response to a request from Pat Higgins.

Variations are e.g. bars 1& 2 |D3D DEFB|B2dA BdAF|, any bar with the B2AF pattern comes out as BdAF or (3Bcd AF. 2nd time thru the A part the 1st note is either [A,3D3] or simply A,3. Bar 3 of B-part: |d3f af~f2| or an octave |[D3d3]f af~f2|. Bar 5 of B-part is actually |AB2c dcBc| but is also nice as a long roll on B, or a roll graced with the note below: {A}~B3.

Dow if you get a chance, ask Adrian who was Maddy. Just curious.

This tune is on bb’s list of Tunes for da Gang, no?
