A W. H. Gassner composition from the Buckley 1860 book. The last few measures are always exciting...

I learned that once and your posting makes me want to revisit it.

Your cat seems to enjoy your playing, as well.

Fortunately she (the cat) isn't too discriminating!

Nice one Paul!

NICE!  You really stuck the landing on this one, so to speak;  I think Tim said in reference to this one or Rail Road Polka, it's one of those tunes where you don't know if you've screwed up until you get to the very end.

Thanks. It was a 50/50 shot, I got lucky! Tim's right - as with many of these tunes in Buckley, there's always one part (the last) which makes it or breaks it. It's like a bike race (Tour de France is on) - you can be in the lead for a 100 miles and then loose it in the last 100 yards...
