Nice Wes. Sounds very 18th c. I can picture the elegant dancers sweeping about the floor.

It's from Howe's Violin without a Master 1850. Both parts are written out, the MIDI piano is my own made up accompaniment.

Would sound good on harpsichord

Thanks for posting this, Wes.  I have the Howe's Violin Without a Master and I think I'll learn this one.

So you transpose it into "G"?

And....wish we didn't live so far apart.  It would be fun to try some of those two-part violin harmonies.

Yes, I transposed to G. Here's the original in C.
