Good Boy Lead Sheet

I’ve been asked a couple of times if charts for my tunes are available so I thought I’d share them. Here is the lead sheet for my instrumental ‘Good Boy’. I wrote it after hearing my dear friend and mandolin virtuoso Joe K.Walsh play a break in which he opened the solo with the intro line from this tune. During the tour of the US that we were on at this time, Joe introduced me to the music of David Grisman, aka ‘Dawg’, I think this influenced not only the melody, particularly the B part but also caused me to have the tune from ‘How Much Is That Doggy In The Window’ going round in my head. You can hear it here – Good Boy
