A 6/8 march ?

It’s not a waltz of course. It’s a march, though a modern one written by Steve Cooney, and recorded on Sean Smyth’s ‘Blue Fiddle’.

The feel of it is like a Scottish 6/8 pipe march. But with an Irish feel to the melody. Bit of a hybrid, but a great stirring tune.

Always liked this tune - thanks for reminding me of it, "Fliuiteadoir".

Coda ommitted

I did of course leave out the final ‘5th part’ as recorded by Sean Smyth, since it’s just a drone on low D, and more of a coda than a melodic part.

6/8

Yes, a swung 6/8…

6/8 but it ain’t straight…

Yes, as you already know, it is crooked, for example, bared slightly different from your 3/4 transcription, just a few bits as a guide ~
