Whisky Kiss (Slow Reel)
Whisky Kiss Mp3
Baby Rosey’s Slip Jig
This tune was written in 1999 shortly after the birth of my daughter, Rosey. She used to call them ‘diddly diddly’ or ‘mummy tunes’.The harmony written here is not a ‘duet’ harmony, but is a representation of the arrangement as it appears along with full backing on the CD ‘Becky Taylor’. The second part of the tune is a variation on the harmony from the first part, with the addition of a counter harmony just to confuse things!
