    Re: Six-Twenty 2-step

    The 'Six-Twenty' Two Step as originally published by Mozart Allan in 1960
    was structured as follows;
    4 bar Introduction
    16 bars-- repeat that 16 bars with new last bar
    Another 16 bars, also repeated with new last bar
    48 bars
    First 16 bars and repeat with new final bar.
