Tune: Corriente Del Golfo

August 22nd, 2011
music, contra  [html]
I finally named the tune [1] I wrote back in november: "corriente del golfo". We've only played it for dancers three times because we don't have a good set for it yet, but each time the caller has commented that they liked the tune (without knowing that I wrote it). This doesn't happen for my other tune [1] so I think this isn't just them reacting to a novel tune. Can you think of a tune that would go well with it? I want to play it more, but I don't think it can hold it's own as the only tune for a dance.

Update 2012-08-04: I've started calling this just "Corriente".

Update 2014-04-30: I wrote out some sheet music.

[1] The recording has it once slow, then once up to speed. I don't think we have a recording of us playing it live.
