Two Nice Eyes

Self-indulgently posting a self-composed tune (my first on here).

Story behind the name is long and involves many familiar characters, a euphemism, misunderstandings of the said euphemism and subsequent events. I’ll shut up now.

I bet I can guess what it’s about.

No response after a while, so I will come to the conclusion that DJF does not know what it’s about and therefore the time is ripe for a…

*victory dance*

At least learn how to do ABC notation dear mehitabel, or find a dozen other tunes to make up for this… 😏

"Two Black Eyes and a Broken Nose"

It ain’t half bad ~ 😉

Don’t strike me, my glasses, and I’m ill… 😏

what’s wrong with my abc??

Music is also about space, the silences, and as with print and ABCs, the SPACING!!! ~ not all crammed together in a single line ~


Ah, calm myself, take a few deep breaths, cough, cough, cough, and count to 12, and ~ I see you’ve changed it. 🙂 Good, now put it into phrases of no more than 4 bars to a line, like this ~

Let it breath… Ahhh hhhh | hhhh hh h2 | ~

Wow I didn’t realise the ABC parser was so sensitive…will change it, apologies for my rage earlier, ceo, family troubles….

Rage, you, I would have never suspected… Me, yes, I have my moods, and a splitting headache right now ~ a real one aggravated further by a certain someone who is a bit of a pot banger ~ best avoided in my current less than patient state, or any other state.

I like your little tune, if it wasn’t clear, had fun playing it, what more can you ask, eh? ~ even if I took it slightly squiff… 😉

I like the name - where did it come from?


Hey Joe, whaddayuh doin’ with that gun in your hands?

I’m goin’ down to shoot my own lady - you know I caught her messin’ round with another man…

sorry about your glasses ceol, I just got back from therapy, the lady told me to practise saying sorry.

Joe CSS…well I guess the weekend generally brought out a creative streak in me.

Only ceolachan could get away with using a word like "whaddayuh" without me noticing first time…

joe i hope you were being sarcastic about the name thing! you know fine well where it came from! or you should do anyways!
its a brilliant name 😀

Nice job

Good tune. I usually find most of the self written pieces to be somewhat predictable.

I’d like to record it. Permission?
