Rat in the Bed

2008-07-04, tags: waltz

Waltz by Danny Chapman. He composed it when one of his pet rats was ill.

Danny Chapman plays it with multiple parts in one go. You can find his recording on YouTube.

Since I am not so skilled as he is, I made a melody-only version. There are few locations to reverse push/pull here and the tune is quite fast. It also has no end: it keeps on turning, which makes it an ideal session tune I think. Very simple, compelling melody.
