Yes, Ricardo.  I love this!!  Interesting 5 beats to the bar.  I particularly love the sound of the bass note on that long pull section.

Like Pete said - the playing is superb!

Thank you for sharing this with us!

A song by Steve Earle from Copperhead Road taken rather out of genre. I had thought of complicating the arrangement but then ....... some lovely basses do fit but distract from the song.

Have a great Christmas y'all

Very nice Forrest. Cittern goes well with the box.

Here is my stab at The Winter's End. Learned from Liam O'Flynn CD where he is playing uilleann pipes so this qualifies for both Theme and Tune of the Month!

I don't go in for Christmas much, but this one had a wintry title:
Willie Taylor's Snowy Monday, which I heard Kathryn Tickell play on Radio 3 last night, and then this morning discovered I had a copy of the music at home.

Morning all, and a time to wish those here a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
Must admit to feeling a touch slow this morning, but that Willie Taylor tune from Anahata is just lovely.
A perfect way to start the New Year.
Thank you!

I think I'm starting to get most of the notes in roughly the right order...... sometimes!

That was wonderful, really liked it!

Ah I had a bash at this a month or so ago, great tune! It went on my list of tunes-to-arrange-properly-someday, might have to revisit it now ;D

Here's a rather belated festive tune from me: https://soundcloud.com/robotmay/un-flambeau-jeanette-isabella

I tried to find some non-religious wintery tunes and ended up with one of the most overtly christian ones, but eh; Wikipedia says it was probably a dance tune originally, and I'm definitely playing it more like that than a carol ;D

My USB audio interface managed to kill itself, hence why this is a very late addition to this theme. Got myself a new one now though, and I'm getting much better quality audio out of it too.
