    I couldn't find that this one had already been posted. Hopefully I am correct. This tune was first published ~1710 as a Scottish Hornpipe. As always, I decided to do this one based on the lovely melody. I hope that you enjoy this one.

    I really like the song, Jason and the way you have involved the other instruments and other parts to make a fun tune.

    Nice production, Jason, with a good balance between the instruments. Good use of the quarter screens to show the different instruments too!

    Thought Id try this one, its interesting, it seems to me structured a bit like a French tune.

    Two great versions, Jason and Simon! Both fun to listen to!

    -though probably not nearly as much fun as I had trying to line the tracks up!

    What Frithof said, both versions are fun listening to them.

    Thanks Christian, I didn’t use a click track on this one so I did slow down and speed up a bit throughout the tune. What’s interesting is that my tempo changed for the octave and the banjo, but it changed in the same places.
    True I was listening to the octave on the headphones while I played the banjo but even within measures the changes were similar.
    I think it’s right hand changes that occur while I’m thinking of the left.

    The tracks sound fine Simon. I enjoyed the banjo addition here even though the banjo and I don't play together in the sandbox well at all.
