I love crooked tunes! This crooked tune is a Quebecois tune, of which 75% is identical to another tune called Reel Des Eboulements.
I'm not a Canadian fiddler and although sometimes I try to imitate the style, this time I didn't. I just liked the melody a lot and didn't want to get in the way of it by throwing my bow around like a real Canadian fiddler because when I do it I sound like crap. SO. I think it turned out having sort of a Cajun feel instead, which is fine by me.
So, for a review of what crooked means, in case you're new here. Crooked=awesome.
Really though, crooked is what you call a tune when it's not square, or each section isn't made up of 8 or 16 bars. This one has a square A, B, and D part, but the C part is all kinds of wacky. It has 8 1/2 bars, with a 3 1/2 bar phrase followed by a 5 bar phrase. Wahoo!
