Lightening the Load

Another contra reel by Jonny Dyer this week! It's a good work out for the bow with string crossing and choice of bow direction. You need to be light and bouncy to get round this one!
I've included a link to one of the first times we took this tune out into a dance.
It's a 48 bar reel, the teaching version is correct. The dance version was altered to try to make it fit a 32 bar. We decided in the end that we didn't really like that way of playing it, but I thought I'd put the version up for the blog so you can see it in context! (The video is unlisted, because it's not perfect!)
