Storm Cloud

A new jig (October/November 2006) which seems to be the product of mixing a pentantonic blues scale and a phrase from ‘Banish Misfortune’ on an octave mandola (where the fingering just seems to suggest itself).
It has a certain ‘rock’ quality to it. I wasn’t entirely sure about the key signature, especially with mixing of B flats and B naturals in the second half - but I’ve stopped worrying about it.

A G drone (or G5 drone) seems to go quite well in the first half with maybe Gmajors and Fs added to the second

Dedicated to my partner Dawn.

Storm Cloud - alternative key

I’ve started playing this after Brother Gildas and have shifted it to D dor/mix rather than G ditto (with small adjustments).
