                            by John Fahey


This tune is an epic of simplicity.  It sounds long and 
complicated but it is made of pieces that are both simple and 
physically easy to play even for the inexperienced fingerpicker.  
It is great fun to play; there is a well defined melody line and 
a catchy loping rhythm even when played at slower tempos.  And it 
is in standard tuning, unlike most of Fahey's longer pieces.

You can hear Fahey's rendition of this piece on his CD's THE 
YELLOW PRINCESS (Vanguard; also available as part of THE 
ESSENTIAL JOHN FAHEY) and THE RETURN OF THE REPRESSED: THE JOHN 
FAHEY ANTHOLOGY (Rhino).  In the very amusing liner notes to THE 
YELLOW PRINCESS Fahey states that the tune is based on a passage 
descending into the usual Fahey surreal fantasy.
