Transcription

Transcription based on the recording *Long Distance Love* by Cara. This is a really sweet little tune. The B part is unusual. You’d expect a full bar between (EFGF GAGB) and then a repeat, but there’s only half a bar (dGBd). Any suggestions? :-)

Haven’t heard the original but, playing through the tune (and examining the score) there is always emphasis on the fourth crochet (quarter note) of the odd numbered bars. This syncopation hints at a 3/4 feel which only wins over at the end of the B part.
So think of the B part as six bars of 4/4 and two of 3/4.
