I’ve considered posting this tune before, but was too embarassed, partly because of a passing resemblance to a certain well known Irish traditional tune by the Penguin Cafe Orchestra and partly because it’s just a downright silly tune. Last night, I added an extra bar to the B-part (it was originally even sillier) and this morning, came up with a downright silly title for it, which seemed somehow to justify it.

I don’t expect to be hearing it in sessions (unless I’m uncouth enough to play it myself), but I feel thta by posting it here, I’m getting shot of it. If anyone else feels like playing it, that’s their problem.

It’s fun, take credit for it!

I like the tune—I just printed it out to play for my guitar player. But Jeez, guy, give yourself credit for writing it in ABC’s C: field!

I hate to just write "David" as the composer. It’s a fun tune and you should proudly take credit for it!

The title reminds me of "Music for a Found Harmonium" Hmm, maybe I could post that tune.

Actually, I just found out that the Harmonium one is already in here.

Thanks for your feedback, Marguerite.
Feel free to play around with it - I would probably never play it as I’ve written it here.

Just in case you’re interested, there’s another of my tunes here in The Session. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a title (any ideas would be welcome). You’ll find it by searching under Gan Ainm, Jig, Amixolydian (it should be the only tune that comes up).
