A Peep behind the Curtain

Another tune from Joshua Jackson - this time JMS 93. Based on experience, it may well be on here already with a different name or in a different key! If not, then try it transposed to G, dropped an octave and then played on a low D whistle.

I think you’re safe… 😉

Lovely Book with great tunes!

Andy have you heard the Magnetic North recording of this set?:

It’s fun to play anyway!

Some time for this tune…instead of playing the D major arpeggio ofter the A arpeggio at the start of the B section…I play a B minor one:

btw it a low B instead of a high b for the b section (bar 8)

Well spotted…

… and thanks D.J.F. I’ve updated the ABC. And, no I’ve not heard the recording and can’t find out where to get it - it doesn’t seem to be available via the link given in the book or on Amazon. Any clues?
