OK, we had 81 songs posted by 11 members for the letter I. I doubt that any other club could boast that participation. Of course, thanks to Eric. Now for J. No restrictions other than the title has to start with the letter J. It’s the 1st of December in Australia but I won’t try and beat the date line. Start posting.

My J tune for December. It is called Jock o’Hazeldean which I found when looking for a tune starting with J. Apparently it was written by Sir Walter Scott from a ballad called Jock O’Hazelgreen. I had never heard the tune before but thought I would try it as it is quite slow and easy which made it a good tune to attempt on tremolo.



I found the tune in Alf Warnock’s ABC tune collection. Here is the ABC code.

I don’t now why I had never heard it before as it seems that a lot of people have recorded it and a few can be found on YouTube. I think the best is by Jim Malcolm. The lyrics can be found here.

Drifter, I agree. It’s a great ballad, easy to follow and I’m going to try it on the Tremolo. You did a good job playing with a pleasing background music that didn’t intrude.
