    Here’s a tune that goes from a G major A part, to D major for the B part.
    I added an entirely random set of photos of Montreal.
    -actually, now I think about it, I think I was remembering someone I met there...

    Nice production Simon. Almost sounds like two different songs. I like the way you went slow to fast and added your own creativity- ...assuming that was intentional.

    Thanks Ginny, yes, this is what happens when I don’t use my metronome click track.
    Now my vid is ruined!!

    Fascinating treatment, Simon. As Ginny says, it is almost like two tunes with the change in tempo and the key change, but I think it works rather well here and your video is not ruined!

    I know the first tune as the A part of The London Hornpipe.

    -and some say the first part is like The Donegal Hornpipe, others say it’s like Navvie on the Line... Montréal is a bit like that!
    The first part does have a lovely flow on the fingers.

    Thanks John.

    Thanks Christian, my favourite picture is the one at the end.
    There’s been heavy snow the whole night, and you wake up in the morning and open the curtains. Wow!
