Double Bar

I finished the short score of Lone Star Polka this morning. I hope it’s not too long. It now clocks in around 9 minutes, 30 seconds.

I’m not sure how I feel about the title. AEJ thinks the piece tells the story of an old west saloon, and I think she’s right. “Lone Star Saloon Polka” doesn’t really roll off the tongue, and I don’t know if anybody wants to play a piece called “Lone Star Saloon” or even “The Saloon Polka.” “The Brothel Polka” is pretty good, but I don’t know if any educational institutions would touch it.

Any suggestions?

To celebrate, I’m going out for brunch.

Why not just call it Western Polka

Unless there is a copyright issue, why not use the name of an old saloon in the title - like "Judge Roy Bean's Polka" or some variation of his name. I kind of like "Judge Bean's Polka", myself . . . Good luck!
