Steve Gardham. Adapting tunes "on the hoof" is something that all dance musicians learn very early in their careers, either changing 32 bars to 48 by playing AA.BB.AB, or cutting 32 bars down to 16 using just 1A part Followed by 1B. Even adding or leaving out sections as the dance progresses if the dancers gallop ahead or slow down is pretty much par for the course !!.
