Bob, that's Fandango, the name of a Spanish dance. Fan dangle is what a band does to an irritating fan, i.e., causes him to dangle, hanging him out to dry, as it were, if he needs sobering up :D

I am aware of the the spanish dance from the 1700s a version of which was published here some time before the Great War under that name, it was not the practice to date music books so I do not know how long before the war it was published only that from it size it was prior to restrictions on paper use imposed during the period of the war. C Bachelor was learning Fiddle prior to that war in NSW Australia in the Horton River area This is presumably the tune the people he learnt from substituted for the original which was, I think, written incorrecctly, well I cannot make sense of it. His name for it was Spanish Fandangle, which was a name for a dance I was familiar with before I new anything of fiddling or much of dancing. Our version is as llikely to have come to us via the USA as directly from spain. I playedthis tune recently to a dance graduate who was able to demonstrate some of it though not the complete dance as it is a 4 couple dance I think ,she thought it was lacking a quick passage for a particular part of the end of the dance.The B has 18 bars. If I had a fan or fans I would look after them however drunk, they are hard to find . Bob

There is a blues tune known as Stack o' Lee and Staggerlee, so I guess you can have Fandangle. I kinda like how words will get transmografied. Like the name, love the tune. Very snappy!

Right now I m in deep emotions while listening this remarkable piece which is just about to bring tears in my eyes and I simply don't feel like to recording of myself because it is the language of heart and let it speak it's own language and performing on the rhythms of this.
