I don't think in terms of chords - that's the guitarist's problem. ;) I set the tune in A mixolydian because it just came out with G naturals as I was making it. I've no objections to G sharps though, in fact I'd probably throw in a few on the fly to spice things up (as long as I'm playing unaccompanied).

My brain interferes with me on bars 1, 2 and 5 of the second part. They're pretty much interchangeable and the decision to write them the way I did was more or less arbitrary. As with any tune, the dots are just there as a rough guide.

I've put a clip of the New Year's Fling in the Yahoo groups shared files. I was playing it faster when I wrote it, but I find I have to subtract at least 10 bpm when there's a mic in front of me.   :mad:

Simon - I typed a long winded congratulatory post about your tune and your playing. I have no energy left so I'll just say, Brilliant!
