This is a great tune.  The flute plays through a few times before rest of band joins in.  Found some sheet muaic for it on the session but it sounds better to me and closer to fiddles here played down on  A and D strings atarting out..

@GregW -

Well, you should have no problem playing Freemount Bypass if you've been fiddling with this one! 

Belongs in my new (fantastical) category of "Finger-twisty" tunes. (lol) 

🤔 For some reason, this kinda puts me in a trance.  Maybe because the rhythm doesn't feel quite as syncopated?

hmm... guess "I" should have no problem with this, now. 😏

Could also be the repetitive melody bringing on that meditative mood to this tune.  Not a lot of variation in dynamics.

I like this. I think it would make a great, fun “exercise” thrown in with my scales just to mix it up.

Thanks for sharing, @GregW.
