This Months Tune

Tripping Upstairs: Right; time for a Jig. This is one of the first I learnt and continues to be one of my favourites. A classic Melodeon tune and a great foot tapper at sessions too. Again I've written the tune out in very basic form, so you can add your own twiddly bits. Anyway I hope you have fun with the tune whatever you play it on.


Tripping Upstairs

And here is the tune Tripping Upstairs in midi format.
