Composer: Roger Tallroth

of Vassen (which is a swedish band which I dunno much about) composed this tune. John McCusker recorded it on his 2nd Cd "Yella Hoose"

This is a more accurate version of what john mccusker does in the 2nd part (a few slight changes but nothing much).

Vasen

everyone should really check out Vassen…(really spelt..Vasen…with a double dot over the ‘a’.) they are an amazing band…..the best Swedish folk band ever!…..seriously…..hear them NOW!

Rob, I’m all with you here. Have seen them live a couple of times, and it’s a real treat.

Love ‘em!

BTW: this piece comes from an album called Världens Väsen, and is really called ‘30-Års Jiggen’.

What does the mark above the G’s mean in the third line?
