Vladimir’s Steamboat

Tune by Jay Unger. 3rd tune in the ‘Beehive’ set on Flook’s ‘Rubai’ album.

An octave lower?

Most session players would probably prefer to play this an octave lower - would you mind modifying the abc to make it a bit more player-friendly?

cheers

The abc has been brought down to earth, but the dots are now destined to remain in the stratosphere for ever !

(Michael - maybe the abc for The Beehive needs the same?)

Cool Tune

We used to play this tune alot for contradances. This is the version I’ve drummed up:

Vladimir’s Steamboat, X:4

the version from Flook, play it on a low A whistle as if you are playing a D whistle.

Vladimir’s Steamboat, X:5

A version in Dmix, as heard at a session in Austin, TX.
