This was written for the title, which came out of a discussion about the Halloween jig and other tunes suitable for this time of year

Bizarre.. but beautiful. This will definitely improve my playing ability if I can get this sounding good.

Nice tune Robin! Bloody difficult to play mind - I will work on it and maybe if we meet again I can give it a go! 🙂

Hey thanks Alistair 🙂 It’s funny but it’s rediculously easy on the english concertina - makes a change from tunes like the Tongadale reel that is nigh on impossible on the concertina but a doddle on the fiddle.

Maybe if I shifted it down to A minor then at least on the fiddle you would always be bouncing back to an open E string instead of the F#. It’s only in B minor to fit with the Halloween jig

But if you put it in A minor then there would be F naturals to cope with and that would make it a whole lot more challenging for me on my whistle! 🙁
