McCarthy’s Antarctic Slip-Slide

A 9/8 – 12/8 hybrid ‘Slip-Slide’ composed for the 40th Birthday of Danny McCarthy, one my wife’s best friends.

Danny is an exuberant Aussie lady of Irish heritage who was on a one-year assignment in Antarctica as a meteorologist when I wrote this. Vital work in this day and age!

Danny also captains ships professionally and she paraglides in her spare time! The sheet music here reflects Danny’s work and hobbies. It was designed by my wife Celia.

I play all the instruments on the recording – nylon string guitars, steel string guitars, triangle, shaker, hosho and handclaps.
