Three comments

I like this tune. Mike gave me some info on it, how to play it etc. but i already deleted the email as it took up too much space in my inbox… so Mike put that stuff on here too!

an easy slide/jig

The first part is kind of in Cmaj and is straight forward
The second part kind of gets a bit mixed up on itself but comes right at the end (the F sharp in the third bar is important to make the Dmaj chord)

If you play the flute or the pipes (ie you can’t go down to the bottom G), just play those parts an octave higher. It’s not quite as good but it still works

Play it as fast or slow as you like
