Four comments

Written for two friends who are to be married in December

Written for Rachel and Mark Harwood, Dublin.

Originally intended to be played before the Bm jig ‘Britt in the Liffey’ which is not yet on thesession.org

December Wedding

Do you play all of the tune in the pattern 2-2-2-3 instead of 3-3-3 or just those bars where it is obvious?

Syncopation

Only bars 2 and 6 are played entirely ‘straight’ (with no bounce at all).

In the B part, the bits which pedal between the B and another note have the emphasis on that other note. This seems to convince the ear that the music has suddenly slowed down for that part.
