Learnt It By Ear!

You know stuff when you learn it by ear - ends up being a bit different - but hey! -thats the beauty of folk music!

Learnt this at my youth folk band (a kind of ceildh band).

Easy to onarment as well.

I think its from around where i live (ooh arr ooh arr - cider for me supper tonite!) you’ve geussed (if you live in england) Somerset! (after all we’re learning local tunes)!

Enjoy!

C: Maxou Heintzen ~ changed from 4/4 to 6/8 by Undine Hornby

Maxou Heintzen, a French musician associated with La Chavanee…

Nice one birlibirdie, being well familiar and fond of the wood of this one, and its many musical uses…
