Abbil-Gubbens Gånglåt

Abbil-Gubbens Gånglåt is a walking tune that was composed by Hammarbergs Hans, a fiddler from the village of Torsåker in the province of Gästrikland.

  I have found nothing about Abbil-Gubben (the old man from Abbil), but evidently the tune was named for someone who liked it, anyway.

  It is called a gånglåt, but I like it better as just a listening piece, played delicately.  It can, of course, also be played with a lot of strength.
