Wandering Spirit


This is a fun but very playable slip jig in 9/8, also known as Elizabeth Kelly's Delight.

Like the famous Butterfly, this tune is a slip jig, in 9/8 time.  It's a lot of fun to play and a great addition to your ghostly repertoire. The first verse features a rollicking open hand pattern in the left hand--it looks impressive but is not hard to master.  There is also some fun parallel motion in the second verse.

A Dorian (key of G); 2 pages of music.  No lever changes.  No fingerings or brackets.
