    Hereís a nice bouncy little tune I recorded last Christmas day, and it seems I neglected to share it with you guys.
    -I must have been having too much fun in Lockdown!

    Nothing comes up as a tune search for this title on MC, hope this isnít an error thing.

    That's a great wee tune, Simon, and well played. Nice to hear it with no backing too.

    Thanks guys, yes I like it too, it’s just a simple tune. I first heard it years ago in California played with a more extended rhythm.
    I like the repetitive A part. I use the tune as a trance, warm up, loosen up, rhythm exercise with the metronome set on my 6/8 hesitation rhythm
    -the time intervals (1,2,3 4,5,6) are not all exactly equal.

    I used to have to watch TV while playing this, because it’s so repetitive, but now my fingers feel more relaxed with it, like a form of meditation.

    Well done, Simon.

    Lawrence aka gortnamona did a fine recording of this jig as second tune in a set.

    It has that "Humpty Dumpty" rhythm that makes you fall off the wall...

    Ha, ha, Humpty what? Bertram what do you mean? Too regular? English Country Dance rhythm?

    -I actually did try a more extended 6/8 rhythm a couple of days ago, but it sounded to my ears just the same!
