COMMENTS
G. 953. Written down 1936. Myllarguten used to play it to fill out an awkward pause at a wedding, for example when the bridal procession came down from the "loft" and took some time to find their places. When Myllarguten played, the other guests were supposed to leave the table, and make way for the bridal procession. (B.s. Johannes Dale, Ymis fradisjon, p. 728.)
