I love this tune. Ed Reavy tunes are so weird and unpredictable.
I've also noticed through the course of this project that tunes that are harder to learn are easier to remember later. They stay in there, becoming part of the furniture in your brain's storage unit. The easy ones come and go.
So this one was difficult to learn by ear, but not impossible. If you want to learn it but you need a slower recording, let me know and I'll email you one. OR, if you really need it, I'll send you a transcription, but on a music staff because I can't read ABC notation.
