  • Thin Ice, X:4

    Okay, so I've now revised it according to how she actually wrote it. Worth noting that in the original recording there are finger snaps instead of stomps, but as most people will agree, stomps are in fact much more fun. more…

  • Re: Thin Ice

    Yes Sol Foster, I tried so hard and couldn't find a way of doing it so it looks right, thank you. Also, thanks jeff for that transcription, I think I have the rythm wrong!! The third beat of some of the 9/8 bars should really be a semiquaver longer. I sha... more…

  • Re: Ril Abergwaun

    I believe it's written by Stephen Rees and has been recorded by Ar Log (of which he is a member). I learnt it directly from him at BEAM (the big experiment) a few years back. more…

  • Thin Ice, X:2

    I've made a different vesion because the session seems to be very confused by the large nuber of time changes, and wants to make a new line despite the "\" command that I've use (which works fine in the preview btw, so when you, say, print it off, it work... more…

  • Re: Ironlegs

    oops I miswrote bars 13-14. They should be up one note. more…

  • Blue Angel

    This is from the second track on J.P. Cormier's guitar CD 'Primary Color'. The First two sections are repeated as often as desired, then in the last time through, the 'C' part is sandwiched between the two before finishing off (so it's like ABABACB or wha... more…

  • Ironlegs, X:3

    I learnt this at a session somewhere. Here I put up a version with as little ornamentation as I could, so that it's more up to the interpretation of the player. more…
