I hope the cheeseburgers at the grill are as cheesy as this tune.

That is all.

Can we please set this with "two nice eyes"

I quite like this. It’s daggy in a good way. I’d class it as a barndance rather than a hornpipe.

I also would have liked to hear the last couple of bars of the A-part repeated in the B-part. It’s a nice little phrase that, and it deserves to be repeated. Here’s my version I just played :-)

I just played it through a few more times and the B-part started coming out differently in the middle too. See what you think of this:

Sorry for grafitti-ing your tune submission, but you could also put a few schottischey Scotch snaps in there too. Try this:

Dan, I love you. I really do.

Thankyou Joe! :-)

Dow, yeah I wish I had spent a further 5 minutes onto the original 20 it took to compose this to think about putting bits of the A part into the B part lol

I like your variations a LOT

Figures Dow, it has more bounce in it… 8-)

Dan & Joe, swinging on a tune ~ pee, eye, ess, ess, ess, ee,dee….

You might have to develop the fine art of disquise Dan. But, maybe it’s nothing to worry about. It’s a good thing to be loved…even by scary people… ;-)

Be Honoured Dow

I’ve altered to the ABC to match that of your first variation 8-)

I’m so walking down the aisle to this. My boyfriend disagrees, for some reason. Eejit.

LOL Abby! :-P

He’s quite right too, whoever he is (thought you weren’t taken anymore?!)

Relax, Dan. We’re back together, until he leaves the country anyway. I could rather get used to men grovelling on their knees asking to be taken back…:-) not that it will ever happen again of course!

Is this the one you rejected because he didn’t like folk music?

No. Keep up, Joe, that was ages ago! This one’s training to be an opera singer!

Aaah…




You have weird taste….

Says he who likes the Wizard’s Walk. Go figure.

9 tunebooks!?!?!?!?!?

:-O

12 now!

Hey, don’t look at me, I had to learn it. He who posts the goofy thread must learn the tune that results, isn’t that the rule? No? Well, it should be, darn it.
