I haven't been in here in nearly a year (long story told elsewhere) so I decided I'd better bring a gift. In most dialects of Cajun French, "crapaud" is the moniker for what English-speakers in Louisiana call the "rain frog" (not "toad" as in the original French). These are small but very abundant little treefrogs who make a deafening chorus after every rain. Because most rain falls in the afternoon, these frogs are often up all night partying, so you might as well join them because you won't be able to sleep anyway . Thus, "Crapaud" is a lively traditional dance tune. I really like this tune. It's got that Cajun sound to it. It'll definitely give you a workout playing it at tempo, but isn't so complicated as to make playing it properly fast all that difficult. Enjoy.
