The Sweets Of May
from the cd
TOP DRAWER STRING BAND
Joel Mabus - solo guitar

(Traditional, arranged by Joel Mabus, 2:36)

Another departure from the contra "band" album, though this
is a good old New England contradance with it's own tune.
Dudley Laufman taught me this tune in the late 1970's for a 
dance he was calling.  Later I worked it up for guitar.

I'm flatpicking here, and the guitar is tuned CADGCE.
A three-part jig.
