From the bow of Sean McGuire/Maguire, some of how he takes it. And, the reason for the (7 is that I’m not sure how to notate a portamento in ABC notation. This particular hornpipe shows up in several early collections in G Major and no suggestion of a portamento or glissando.
“They Key West Hornpipe”
X: 2 “Key-West Hornpipe”
B: "Kerr’s Second Collection of Merry Melodies", page 41, tune #373
More ABC confusion here, as I thought there was a way to change stem directions, which would be wise for that penultimate bar for the B-part ~ | Cedc BAGF | ~ I did try a few things, but nothing seemed to work. :-/
Nice septuplet there. ;)
George Hepple plays this on the FARNE website: http://www.asaplive.com/archive/detail.asp?id=B1701011 I hear some fancy runs in there you might like to note-a-tate.
Making work for this old brain, eh? ;-) As well as your link I’ve got Carignan to listen to again on this one. :-D While these runs are impressive, for me they get in the way of the music rather than complementing it, drawing a bit too much attention to who’s doing what… Sometimes it works, sometimes it’s a bit like taking a machete and slashing up a scene, a two dimensional painting or hacking up a three dimensional rose bush…
