“Good for the Tongue” ~ all in the family, a close one
Yes Laitch ~ a decision was made, right or wrong. I had already done the search, title-wise and note/bar wise, but I his a low last night and put a stop to it and hadn’t added the links as I usually try to do. I was also struggling with the notion of whether this was distinct enough from the other two to stand on its own. "The Washington Hornpipe" had a different enough B-part that I could pass that, and I realized some of my bits were inherited and passed over from "The Stony Steps", probably someone I’d heard play it or had learned it from sometimes ago… Anyway, I took a risk, it seems to have its own distinct character… Bothering my mind more is trying to remember where I got it from? As per usual, the links in my fashion, which I should have put up yesterday, will follow, maybe with some notes too.

‘c’, learn it in the proper key!
I find it easier to play in A as written in "The Portland Collection."
