We're Heading South

We're Heading South (mp3) (pdf)

Waltz. Mostly written on January 15, 2013, recorded last weekend. World premiere with guitar, violin and oboe, by Contratopia last Saturday night (the 19th) during a dance at the Decorah Elks Lodge.

The temperature was above 40 degrees Fahrenheit last Saturday afternoon, still in the thirties at five when we met for dinner and down to the single digits by 9 pm, with a fierce wind bringing the chill well below zero. Heading South was a very attractive prospect.

The photo is a view of the old mill at Spring Mill Park in southern Indiana, taken in March 2009. The tune offers a good chance to practice your half-diminished chords.
