    Very nice Robert! Well played and a set to learn. I like the melodic turns in both of the them.

    Black Friday had me thinking you were about to launch into The Teddybears' Picnic, Robert. The tune has a very Irish feeling to it. It goes really well with the second tune in your set. Fine playing on both.

    Ha, ha, ‘great minds think alike’! I’d just finished typing out the first tune!
    Many thanks Robert!
    Working on learning the second tune now, want it to be one of the sets that I can play without reading… will take some different kind of thinking.

    That's a good set, Robert! It's always nice to hear two tunes that go so well together, and kudos to you for playing them together so fluently and rhythmically.
