Nicely done, folks. It's social music. It is more about the working it out than the putting on the ritz. You can hear the folks getting it better and better each time through and having fun at it.

I have also been working on this, I downloaded a book off this site, maybe the same source you got it from.
The title is something else, sounds like it would be good for a Contra Dance.
Nice Job on the tune, I like how it gets better and better with each pass as everyone gets on board with it.

I learned it from one of our other jammers, Rick Carlson, who I don't think was there that night, or he would have been helping me lead AND it would have been a lot faster. Rick starts everything fast. They play it at Mannion's Jam in Somerville NJ too.

I like this tune so went and listened to the youtube version also. I learned to play it at my lunch break today. Thanks for sharing this one.

It is a really fun tune. I also have Snouts and Ears of America on my "to learn" list. Another Sarah Armstrong tune. Gotta love her tune titles!
