Concert Reel

I'm not complaining or anything, but I have a massive headache today.  I just moved across the country from sea level to about 4800 feet.  Being this much closer to the sun has brought out the vampire-hide-in-basement tendencies in me.  All I want to do is crawl into a dark room.  Instead I did yard work and played the fiddle.  See that?  Fighting off my unsocial tendencies?  It's not easy.

The reel I learned today is a simple enough tune, but depending on who's playing it, it's groovy and swingy, or soaring-off-a-cliff fast.  I usually like groovy, but today I went for the unreasonably fast version.  I blame Frankie Gavin.  He makes it look so fun!
