Long after composing this untitled little tune, I heard a version of "Cumberland Gap" that had a familiar lick, and realized that I'd subconsciously borrowed (stolen?) it. As a nod to the source, I contemplated titling this tune "Cumberland Gaffe" or "Cumberland Crap", but settled on just "Cumberland". Otherwise, an original tune on cigar box banjo and guitar.

Todd, I enjoyed this and Remembrance, the other one you posted today. I know what you mean about subconscious borrowing; I'm always afraid of doing it, even with my own stuff. I have composed tunes and embarrassingly soon thereafter when composing in another tuning come up with something that sounds "familiar" :>(

Always enjoy your work.
