Bob Bolton I give up. What's a HOGEYE? (141* d) RE: I give up. What's a HOGEYE? 19 Jun 12


G'day Hoots,

I think it all depends on which cuckoo you are nesting with.

The only Australian-collected examples to I could find on my travelling hard drive seem to be pretty brisk 'double jigs' (6/8 time).

The Cuckoos' nest tune, which we play for a Barn Dance ... is of course, basically a Schottische. Somehow or other ... a French idea what a German version of a Polka would sound like ... danced by Scots!

Any way, I have submitted a MIDI file ( ... to Joe Offer and/or Leo Pola 'MMario' ) so that may appear ... and, even may ... clear things up!

Regards,

Bob
