    Here is something different. This version came from The Portland Collection book 2 which is a great resource for tunes and the reference for some of the jams at the Winfield, Kansas festival.

    Mandolin - Weber Bighorn
    Lead Guitar - Larrivee SD60
    Rhythm Guitar - Gibson J45 Studio

    Nice one Robert, sounds Italian with the A major instead of A minor. Many thanks again.

    Fine piece Robert, superbly played as usual.
    Too bad, the Portland Collection isn't available as a download...

    -what, not even a pdf of The Forest Wedding? Oh that is a shame. I worked it out from Robert’s piece tonight, but tomorrow will I be able to remember it?

    I agree with Simon regarding that Italian angle. The pictures are interesting, too - I'd think when sitting under trees the most important thing you'd need is a hat, and balancing on a fallen sequoia is something of a feat.

    What a great tune, Robert, and fascinating wedding scenario. If you go down to the woods today, you're in for big surprise....

    Thanks too for the abc file.
