With all the attention on the presidential conventions, I thought it would be a good idea to offer a politically neutral duet. The melody switches back a forth between the two parts to keep both players on their toes. Each of the variations has an identity all its own and the arrangement makes more turns than the roads in Branson. The ending comes to an abrupt close and leaves the listener hanging. I love that effect!

If I had to describe this duet, I would say it is a FUN piece to put together!
