Here is my arrangement of a traditional tune called Wild Asparagus.A quaint little piece
My wife plays a Real Silver Flute on this one!!no midi honest guv,,,except for the little piece of orchestration near the end,,,mixed of course on Reaper.

one could tip toe across the tulip fields to, holding the hand of a pretty girl with a yellow ribbon in her hair.

Ye is a really romantic chant, my valiant bard!

I like the breath of the flute. But the guitar could be a little more shimmering, IMHO.

But what the heck has it to do with wild asparagus???

yep its not the best,,Ill get round to maybe doing the guitar part again.

Good question ie Wild Asparagus???Ive no idea why its called that,,I think the tune may be Irish in Origin and it may not be the correct name for it.
I learned it from a music sheet and the title on the sheet was Wild Asparagus,,but it is most probably not the correct name for that melody.

No its not from this band,,,Wild Asparagus is not the correct name for the tune.Ive heard it played at Irish sessions but the correct name escapes me.

I can so hear John Cleese and Eric Idle singing a tale of the Keeper of the Bridge of Death.

This is great bob. Excellent playing by yourself and your wife, and engineered very well.

Awesome.
