I’d left the > out of the transcriptions above for Jim Crawford and Edna Scahill, to strike a balance for those who seem to dislike having the swing notated… Here they are with it, for those that do. Any screw ups are mine, these transcriptions were done on the fly…

Just arrived in the mail yesterday, When I saw this here it felt you you just got it yesterday as well? I need to work on their version of Kimmel’s Accordion Fantasy, but maybe I’ll give the thistle a shot to warm up.

Danes

Alright I’m working on it now, it’s quite different than the others, with chromatics left out and added in different places.

I can’t wait to see your transcription…

Oh yeah, It’s good to know that since I play the banjo I decided to transcribe the first time through what the banjo is playing.

๐Ÿ™‚ ~ brilliant, and thanks…

Much appreciated Earl. It is good to see so many different ways with one tune. I like | A>fe>^d =d ~ alias ~ | A>fe>_e d ~

Accidentals

good call, I did this with minimal amount of correction afterwards, but that uses one less accidental which is always a good thing.
