How did you manage that?!?  My computer said that you posted this "1 hour ago" yet you've been at my house for that past hour and a half!

I was late...sorry. Trying to cook it and post it.

The chromatic movements in his music make it pleasant to listen to, but difficult to execute with good pitch. I worked this one for a day.

Man, these hornpipes need harmony. Perhaps I'll add a track.

Baur was there early on.....and LIKED the Briggs book many years later.

Humidity can be your friend. Work your instrument. There is great tone in there.

I'm to try the next hornpipe at a quick clip "The Captain Hornpipe". Might take a few extra days to place it well. This book is a free download btw.

Fascinating collection.

Maybe add a fiddle?

I'll give the Muldoon piece a shot.
