The Gopak Slide

This is a fast slide version of a very famous Ukrainian traditional dance tune named Gopak (second syllable is stressed) composed by me (if it`s possible to say so🙂.
May be varied anyway: played without reprises, the 1st reprise instead the 2nd, as a jig, with/without rolls…, etc.
Strange but powerful.


Hopak is ths usual way the name is anglised around here.
I like what you have done to the tune.The melody is still recognisable but now it sounds Irish.

Already in my tunebook! =)

Garna jiga, amigo!! )
