Yes, my ABC transcription was from the sheet music in the quoted link.

I’ve corrected the error that you spotted in bar #6 (c# changed to cnat).

However, I can’t find any error in bar #2.

Please clarify!

Hi Mix, well there isn’t really an error in bar 2 (and bars 4, 6, and 8) other than the fact that the first d doesn’t get played there but gets played right at the end of bar 1 (and bars 3, 5, and 7) so it’s syncopated, as in, for example,
|f2 e3/2d/- | d^c/e/ d/d/=c/A/ | instead of |f2 e2 | d^c/e/ d/d/=c/A/ |.
It’s a subtle difference that makes all the difference (in the video clip, anyway).
Hope this makes sense.
