Ridée: Bannielou Lambaol

Here's a tune I learned from Steve Gruverman. My approach to it is informed by the fact that when I typically play this kind of thing for dancers, I'm told to slow down. It strikes me as a charming, mid-tempo piece with a nice, argumentative bit just at the beginning of the B section. I'm willing to be corrected on any statement in this paragraph.


Notice that I still have done nothing about my "accordion face," and that my chin-action on the stops is exactly the reason you should go for switches if you have the chance.

UPDATE: Steve Gruverman tells me I got the temp just right! Well done, me!
