This hornpipe features a lot of arpeggiated chords. Look out for the high C in the B part, which seems to have tripped even Benny up. I recommend the second and third times through the tune for learning it, as their A parts are more consistent with each other. (The inconsistencies in the A part the first time through may have been mistakes.)
