    Thumbs up Re: The Dancing Leprecon

    Nice work on this, did you play this in? I like the tempo changes and fermatas.
    The melody is reminiscent of a folk tune and I like it a lot. Regards, John

    This is a fun piece! It sounded like you have fun playing and writing it too. I also liked the transitions between tempos. Is this your own melody?

    Best,

    Nicely done!

    The other half of me is Irish, don't ya know (Callahan) -- so I always appreciate a proper Irish tune.

    Some very good narrative-style playing in this, too; it has the sense and feel of a good Irish story to it!

    Best,

    I did play it in but had to correct notes on the second part because it's hard for me to play it unless I practice it.

    Glad you Liked it.

    Yes, it was a fun piece to do. I believe the melodies are mine. I seem to have a knack for writing melodies that sound familiar. I must be a good thief.

    Thanks for the post.

    Elux,

    I'm glad it meets Irish standards. It sounded Irish to me but not being Irish I just had to hope it was.

    I originally wrote the first part as a song. Later I came up with the second part and they seemed to go together. The rest of it just fell into place.

    Thanks for your comments. You're a real asset to the forum.

    Nice Irish tune ya got there. I like the playing on this piece. It does sound a bit familiar but " ALL" Irish tunes sound a bit familiar.

    Great work! This definitely has an Irish feel to it, especially the first part (I've been listening to the Clancy Brothers sing Irish Drinking Songs ). Makes me wish I could play the piano
