Silta (Bridge)

Silta (‘Bridge’ in English) was written by Markku Lepisto, a fine melodeon player from Finland. It’s a remarkable tune, in 3 parts and a rather irregular structure.

Markku normally plays it on a G/C; here I’m playing it on a D/G Castagnari Mory. Haven’t got quite all the fancy bass runs that Markku does, but hey, that’s why he’s a professional musician, and I’m not!

Played as part of’s Theme of the Month for October 2010, ‘Tunes from Scandinavia.’.
