. . . a couple of tunes featuring some very common tied eighth-note/quavers rhythms.
A very common tied rhythm in the second line of this English dance tune, Godesses. Do all the usual preparations, practise it slow and then bring it up to dancing speed. The second half is a varation on the first and might be tricky - treat it as optional / a challenge!
There's quite a wide range in this piece, and some arpeggio/broken chord playing in the second half.
