Thanks!

I learned this tune from a John Carty Cd, but found that once I learned it, Cherish The Ladies, another similar old jig, was hard to play. It seemed that I could only know one or the other. One musical ambition I have is to be able to play either one at will!

I had the privilege of playing this tune (I’m a fiddler) with John Carty a couple of years ago at a St. Louis session. I started the tune, and when we were done, Carty asked me "Hey, where’d you learn that?"

I replied "From one of your CDs!"

He said "Hey, that’s cheating!", with a smile.

When you live in the Midwest, any way you can acquire a tune is worth pursuing!
