|I should first warn you, gentle reader, that outside of having been an admirer of these forms of music for far longer
than is wise and a performer of them for somewhat a lesser time, I have no formal background in music, per se. I
neither read nor write without the aid of the computer, I have attended no institutions teaching theory or composition,
nor do I understand (intellectually) how these things work.My knowledge is empiric only but, such as it is, I offer it
freely. I await the inevitable corrections from the more erudite of my readers and welcome them to submit same so
that I, and through me, you, may be more appreciative of these tunes.
