Beautiful played slowly.

Simpler setting

This is how we play it way down south. This version came from Warrnambool. Goes well after Dunmore Lasses.

a hornpipe, more like, as played by angels up on high!

(Just added a setting which tries to fix the rhythms of the second setting here. I don’t play this tune at all, so I’ve no idea if it’s correct, but at least it looks better.)

Looks better?

in your opinion - it sounds awful with all those B flats

B flat

I assume that phrase is actually supposed to go like |B_B=Bc BAGF| (or probably rather |B^ABc B=AGF|).
It does look better now anyway. :)
