SM428: Cuchuflo's Jig

Cuchuflo's Jig

Cover Image Cuchuflo's Jig is a harp piece that's a little "hybrid", and it's sectioned in two parts. The first part, called "La Cuchufla", represents a neighbourhood girl, who's a national rock and roll fan. A sexy girl that likes football... totally relaxed.

This is the reason why this first part is a little about the "blues", looking back at those slow blues from the canteens in the American Far west. The second part represents "El Cuchuflo", a young harpist boy, fan of the celtic music, the mythology. He's kind of like "Harry Potter", someone who hallucinates seeing Unicorns, elves, fairies. A dreamer. Kind of a "contemporary elf".

This is the reason why this second part is a little Celtic, with an "Irish jig" rhythm. But the third variation of the second part, has a touch from the first one, where you can see the union between both characters, with the typical "blues slides" in the melody. "Cuchuflo", "Cuchufla", "Cuchu", "Cuchuflito", Cuchuflita" were the romantic nicknames they used to call each other.

This is an electric harp piece. feel free to create your own variations if you feel like it. This is a musical piece that has a comic and free meaning, like a young and fresh love. The conjunction between the blues and the Celtic music, is nothing more than another crazy piece from my soul. Have fun when you play it, and remember that the written music is just a reference that you can then use to create your own way, with no barriers or labels.
