Cook’s in the Kitchen Again

This was written after an evening hanging with Canadian fiddler Shane Cook. There was already a tune called "Cook in the Kitchen", and I still wanted to pay homage to his semi-regular fridge raids at a certain fiddling camp... so I added "Again" to my original title.

People say this tune is a bit tricky, and the secret is: the first section is 12 bars... so some people think it's 8 repeated three times, or just plow through the second part playing chords from the first section.

...also, the one bar of silence is when I picture Shane peeking over the fridge door to make sure he's still not busted.
