Personally I would put repeats in the tune.....it grows on you the more you play or hear it..........I found myself whistling it at work today....Definitely a tune I would recommend to add to ones play list. I LOVE the third part......just can't get past it......very well done!!!!! Keep them coming....

David,
Nice wee chune!.......I tried moving the third part up to replace the first part......sort of a intro to the tune........give it s try and see if it flows the way you intended........either way it sounds bloody lovely!.......Cheers, Mark

The only suggestion I would offer would be to slow the tune down a "touch"....150BPM does not allow for the expression I think you were striving for........at 120-130 a band could play some great expression. I happen to like the slow down.....it gives the drum line or group playing seconds to it a c...

Nice tune........but......the timing is off in the first part......you are LIGHT one 1/8th note......that is why it sounds rushed.......nice underlying rhythm though.......once you fix it the way you want it to sound it should be a real nice tune.......Mark

Very nice tune.........However you may want to check your timing on the last bar of each part.....it does not measure 2/4......You have a 1/32 note on the double B, a 1/8th note with hold on a E, a 1/32 note tied to previous E, a G Grace note and a Low A 1/8th note.....the grand total would be 3/8 t...
