Thread Name: Favourite Swing tune?
Subject: RE: Favourite Swing tune?
Azizi...Swing is more or less when the timing of a pair of eighth notes equal a triplet with the first two notes tied, giving a sort of long/short/long/short feel to the half beats. Also a general style as indicated above.

Opus 57 (David Grisman), L-O-V-E, Sweet Geogia Brown, etc. Also like to swing things which aren't always swung, like Limehouse Blues, and traditional hornpipes like Rights Of Man, and Boys Of Bluehill. Lots of swing blues too.

Mooh-ve It On Over.

Peace, Mooh.
