My Love Is In Bulgaria

A fun tune to play,I don’t remember where I have it from.

Forget the name - ?My Love is in America or as one real romantic called it "the bitch is gone"; but it’s just a common reel with one note taken out of the first half of each bar to make it 7/8 instead of 4/4.
"I don’t remember where I have it from." - Bulgaria CCE maybe

I know where it comes from!

I made up this one many years ago and posted it to Irtrad-L some years later.
I was inspired by when I first learnt both The Collier’s Jig and The Collier’s Reel and combined them taking every second half bar from each. Then I figured it was even better to do this with My Love Is in America.
I also found that Toss the Feathers (E minor version) is even better to do this trick with. I think I posted that one too to Irtrad-L
