Great tune, and I like the name!
Is it your composition? Sounds really interesting, as if there was some story behind the tune.

PS the second part has a clasical feel to it. I’ll use it to persuade some of my classically trained friends into ITM.

A really good tune - the B part takes a nice wander before resolving back. Definitely one for a set …

Where’s the person who submitted this tune? Where did they get it? Helloooooooooooo…

Origins

The tune was written (I am assured) by a lady called Undine Hornby of the Late Night Band, I play it with Herbert the Sherbert (Ellison) and The Plane Tree, also by Hornby. It’s a favourite at the sessions in Swindon. Great chords in the B part Bm/Em/A/Bm/G etc.
It’s also my ringtone (is that sad?) - Dave

Re: Hop Break

The 2nd bar of the B Part could be either |geB geB| or |gec gec|, pattern-wise the latter makes more sense, but both sound good to the ear. Have updated X2 to show the alternative.
