I liked it RDP and I really like your garden in the background too. I’m hoping to join I have found the sheet music in one of my beginner books so I’ll give it a whirl. I think it’s in the key of G major. I need a break from oh Danny boy think everyone in my house does too!! 

  

Thank you.  The shot up the garden steps has everyone fooled, it really is a nasty overgrown weedy mess.  There are thistles and dandelions everywhere and all that tall grass isn't supposed to be there at all.  (Although I might plant something similar to give the same effect because it camouflages how run down the garden is getting.)

We shall await your contribution breathlessly.  Okay, maybe not quite breathlessly because no one looks good when their face is blue, but we will be here to cheer when you post.

Thank you very much for Your comme t Sharon, I think this is a great piece, Mouse is moving it to the part room, so hope you find time to do a version.

  

@stringy Will do--might take me a little longer--hurt my shoulder, so it's slowing me down a bit, but I'll be here! smile

I’ll do my best RDP I’ll start practicing and I’m going to push the boat out and wait for it ….. record in a different room !!! Looking forward to hearing everyone else’s version . Thanks for starting the party stringy. The version I’m doing is in A major and in my grade 1 book which I should be finding simple but of course it’s not.

Waiting on LinDee, Doc-Ivory, and that Fiddlerman guy (plus everyone else) to show up and contribute.  Mark has definitely thrown the gauntlet down.

OOOH, OOOH, had to join this party. Many of you have already seen this video, so don't bother watching it again, if you don't want. This tune was the first I attempted to play and record a little over a year ago, and then again a few days ago. First in D major, then D major with the high A in measure 12 taken down an octave, then G major with a similar change to measure 12, and the original was D major.

The old curmudgeon!
