Gordon Jackson Name this tune (47) RE: Name this tune 26 Mar 18

Good morning, er, Captain.

I've played your tune from the dots (haven't listened to the MP3 yet) and I too like it very much, and I too would like to play it, either with my band or solo.

Re the name: I shouldn't get too hung up on trying to find a name that in some way captures the essence of the music. In trad, tune names are simply labels to hang on the tune. For instance, the reel 'Jenny's Wedding' doesn't have any melodic connection to said Jenny, nor her wedding - it's just a name.

I suggest you simply select a name that you like the sound of.

And, of course, let us know what you've decided on, otherwise you may find it being known by half a dozen different names, including Captain Swing's Favourite!

Incidentally, when performing the tune would we have to say 'Here's a tune composed by Captain Swing'?

Well done on the great tune!
