The Rope

I believe that this tune is from Orkney (Scotland).

This version goes well on melodeon - if you have the kind that can do G# and D#.

However, there is a simpler version of the tune which doesn’t have the accidentals.

Ah, I see that Mr. Weejie has kindly posted the simpler version to which I referred … :-)

… I prefer my version - though - (as I said) if you don’t have those accidentals available on your instrument, give X:2 a go.

X:3 - Same as X:1 - but with my own chord settings added.
