Yes, indeed an “easy” tune in the sense that it is predictable. As I found out in the session last night when I heard it for the first time and was able to play in real time with the box player (who was the only person playing it) fairly accurately after the first couple of bars. Can’t say that about a lot of tunes, though!
But, like any tune, however “easy”, it still requires a lot of work to polish it into something you would be prepared to play in public.
I like it.
