Fiddle tune I learned this morning in response to Tim Twiss' "tune of the week".

More musical DNA on the rampage - I took a while to figure out that the B part of this tune is very closely related to the B part of "The Mill The Mill O" which is also the melody of the Robert Burns song "The Soldier's Return" - here's a version (on a cute little stick fiddle) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akkE3r5PPlo 

Now, if I could only figure out what the A part reminds me of... Thanks for that Tim & Paul!

Oh man, way cool. Nice job. How did it come to you...fairly easy? It sounds very good.

BTW...do you have any of these books?

"Fairly" easy, but it's not yet in the fingers -- i tried to play it again 5 minutes ago and couldn't get the B part.  Go figure...  No, I don't have these books.
