Finally . . . two months of mayhem is about to end . . . time to get back to the eight-string and learn some new tunes. What tunes do you guys have in the hopper?

"Summer"? I can look out my window and see snow on the hills!!!

I'm thinking about putting together an arrangement of the lovely Clannad tune "Lady Marian". Whether it will still be lovely after I've finished with it is another matter... :-)

Piper's Dispair (from the other Seamus Egan's In Your Ear)
Top It Off (from Danu's the Road less Travelled - my current favorite listen!)
Garret Barry's (also from In Your Ear)

Brilliancy in jig time for an 8 hand. Good friend, who is a step dance teacher heard me play it in 4/4 and said that would make a glorious jig for a dance she was arranging for a feis in September. It has it's moments, I may even like it, some day.
