Snowflake Reel

Sound Files: Slow Fast

Also called Snowflake Breakdown. I first heard a very silly version of this tune on a Delaware Water Gap LP (or maybe it was Cranberry Lake?) where they did it as a waltz first and then kicked in. The B part as a waltz sounded like circus music. It's very unusual to have the Bb chord there in a D tune, most people either love it or hate it. If I get a chance, I'll record it as a waltz as best as I can remember it.

    I'm enjoying looking around your site!
