"A Wee Scotch" ~ by Con Foley

We’re talking ‘dram’ here, something to wet the whistle. Con also played this as a single, without the repeats. I’ve given it twice, first straight out, and then with some of Con’s takes on it and a little bit of mine. Con sometimes played the first measure as:

He also incorporated some drag and snap in some triplets, such as, and his:

| A>Bc BAF | ~ and ~ | def e<ac | ~ as examples…

Definitely not his, is my occassional tease upwards to ^A ~ and the B/c/dc…

"A Wee Scotch" ~ Con Foley ~ another key and take
