This feels more like 3/8 to me, but isn’t a choice here. For those who prefer it in 6/8, here you go ~

I prefer it down low… 😎

Octaves ~

This is one, for example in E Dorian, that also works nice in octaves, one taking it low while someone else takes it high, partially or completely…

Alternate keys ~ using the Eb fingering given

F woodwind = G Dorian
G woodwind = A Dorian
A woodwind = B Dorian

My O’Neill’s has it…

in G minor with some E naturals in the B part, but not the odd contrast of E flats and naturals in first O’Neill’s transcription above (I haven’t looked at the others yet). It seems to me that in converting the G minor version to G dorian, the marked E naturals were left as natural, but subsequent Es in the same measure, which should remain natural, have been marked flat.

Here’s how it is in my O’Neill’s…

G Dorian ~

muspc, I’m surprised, check that out a little closer, they got the key signature wrong. It’s not minor. Then check out above. All I did was correct the key and eliminate the repeating =e (e natural) from the O’Neill take on it, which I found more confusing than useful… 😉

I forgot to mention it… 😏

& ~ | B3 G2 |] ~ to ~ | B3 G3 |]

Also, as there’s no lead-in given for the A-part of the music, they got the ending wrong. If you played ~ | B3 G2 |} you’d lose an 1/8th each time through the tune, with a kind of hiccup of a bridge from there to the start of the A-part. So, I did change that too, to ~ | B3 G3 |]

Again, I forgot to mention it. It’s been a funny week, as you’ll already know…

CORRECTION from on high ~ "Alternate keys ~ using the E Dorian (not Eb) fingering given"

OOPS!

F woodwind = G Dorian
G woodwind = A Dorian
A woodwind = B Dorian

Sorry, I said it was a funny week. I’ll add another take for a whole slew of other key options for winds for this, just for the madness of it all, and because it has been a mad week…

Rumble in the Jungle ~ the glorious low and and the octave up of it

I love it low. This is for muspc, but realizing it won’t make up for all the mistakes I’ve been guilty of lately… 🙁

Alternate keys ~ using the (high) A Dorian fingering given

F woodwind = C Dorian
G woodwind = D Dorian
A woodwind = E Dorian ~ back around again 😎

Favourites? ~ I’d have to say ‘low’, either E Dorian or A Dorian

3/8 ~ finally, giving at least one go of it that treatment ~ 😎

Grrrrr! ~ I must get more sleep… But, it’s only the one bar. It could be worse… 😏

For example…

In the B part of the O’Neill’s you’ve posted (the first X: 2 on this page), the second measure is this: | fed cd_e | so, there’s an E natural descending followed by an E flat ascending. This is very different in effect from what’s in O’Neill’s. The same odd E nat and E flat situation continues in the rest of the B and the C parts. In O’Neill’s, there’s only one E flat, and that’s probably a mistake (the lead in to the C part). I believe the original transcriber in O’Neill’s, here, followed the classical procedure of shoehorning all pieces into a major or minor key signature, then marking with accidentals the true mode—which, I agree, is G dorian.

Fifth bar of the C part…

in the same transcription you posted is also very odd: ^f/g/a=.f gde | For some reason, this converts as having a C natural between the a and f! Strange!

The above is simple flip-flop

… of the dot and equal sign, but why that would convert to an extra note is beyond the realm of my ABC understanding!

Thanks for the Low version!

I’m enjoying it! Of course, since I’m playing it on my main instrument, the guitar it sounds an octave even lower! 🙂

~ | ^f/g/a=.f gde | ~ into ~ | ^f/g/a=.cf gde | ~

Weird! I just fed those O’Neill transcriptions into Concertina Dot Net’s Tune-O-Tron and it did exactly as you said, not picking up the staccato of the dot. Instead of
~ | ^f/g/a=.f gde | ~ it reads ~ ~ | ^f/g/a=.cf gde | ~
Why does it throw an extra note in the conversion?

If I put it ~ | (^f/g/a).f gd=e | ~ it converst without a problem…

Now to try it with the natural ~ ~ | (^f/g/a)=.f gd=e | ~ MAD!!!

It seems that an equal sign followed by a dot is taken as c natural ~ =.f ~ becomes ~ =cf

GUITAR! ~ I’d love to hear it taken there… In the past we’ve had the joy of playing regularly with really nice finger picking and plectrum guitarists. I miss that… I appreciate and love good accompaniment, but we both are fond of it when the melody is taken on the guitar with some skill…

~ | ^f/g/a.=f gde | ~ Solved 🙂

The dot (.) needs to come before the natural sign (=), as given above.

That makes sense. I was sleeping on the job…
