This is one of variations of a guitar instrumental I wrote years ago. Originally it was in the key of B, regulation tuning, no capo as a reel. That was tough! I played it until it worked for me then forgot about it. Sometime during th course of selecting music for the album it resurfaced, but not in the original form. This time it was a waltz in G for recorder. It worked better than the reel. Then I asked Anne to recreate the reel in G for fiddle. She smokes it here on Stag's Leap Reel.
