Origin

I was reading a book about violin playing written by Leopold Mozart (father of Wolfgang Amadeus) in 1756. His chapter on bowings somehow inspired this little jig.

The tradition ?

Can I politely point out, Jerry, that the protocol on this website is that if you post an original composition, you’re supposed to post some traditional tunes as well.

Sounds a bit like a slide to me, but I don’t fully understand slides anyway….
