That’s a common way for tunes to be built, and listening to it, it seemed like a reasonable way to make it consistent with more familiar tunes. There’s no algorithm, and it’s not impossible there might be a tune out there (maybe even this one) that actually is built as awkwardly as this one is presented. What’s needed to try to make sense of something like this is not music theory, but exposure to a wealth of tunes in the genre and an awareness of patterns. Good! That's pretty much what I'm doing. I shall carry on in the same vein! I see/hear a lot of tunes which seem not to finish 'correctly', and there is usually an obvious way to end them 'nicely' - I will be a little less hesitant about doing this in future... I also see tunes in which the key sig. is a little 'odd' to put it mildly (eg: X instead of possibly Xmin). There are usually obvious solutions - which I will be applying in future (there are also instances where it's not so obvious - klezmer for instance - proceed with caution). Thanks!
