Spurlock’s Half Century Reel
I composed this in commemoration of a good friend’s 50th birthday. She asked all of her friends if we could get together for a house session with food, drink and tunes… and we did just that last night. It was brilliant! I mentioned to her at one point that I had written this tune for her, and that I would give her a private listening much later after most people had left. Next thing I knew she had gathered one and all for the premiere. Not the way I like to present a tune I wrote, or any tune for that matter that I only heard for the first time 3 nights prior. I managed 3 decent passes and she was delighted. So anyway… I hope she still likes it after we’ve all sobered up.
Phantom, this is a great tune.
Not to mention, that I’m more than a little excited, simply because Spurlock is my maiden name, and it’s just not a name that is thrown around every day.
Way to go. Yahoo, to the Spurlocks.
Thanks, Anew… glad you like it.
Would you believe this? I couldn’t get the ending phrase cBce dBGB|A2dc BGG2:| out of my head, so I put it into http://abctunesearch.com/ and got your tune as the only suggestion (highly unlikely, despite the 88% match).

I just looked back at this and realized I play it a bit different now. Edited in an update.
