Hello again Luigi - and everyone. I was looking for versions of this tune on youtube and came across this. I thought you might like it. The fruits of lockdown I suppose.

Nice tune, nicely played Luigi. And thank you for posting the tab.

For all who are interested here are tabs. Not quite my version. Thanks to covid19 I had a lot of time and was able to finish the hummel.

Yes, Strumelia, you are right. Huit means eight. It's a bourree in 3/8 time. It's probably a bagpipe-piece, so it has this semitones.

Very pretty, Luigi!  I guess this traditional French piece translates to "Dance to Eight" or something close? Your recording lifted up my morning.  :)

By the way, It's a good example of how when playing early music and older folk tunes, you need both the 6 and the 6.5 fret... both the natural and the sharp note are put into as a recurring 'accidental'. Avoiding playing the accidental changes the overall feel of the tune too much, since it's often that note that gives the tune it's individual character. I find this happens a lot when playing really old medieval and Renaissance tunes.
