Flight of the curlew
Written after moving to live back in a town after many years in the country and looking out over wet slate roofs and reminiscing about the birds & wildlife whilst imagining the swoop and dives of the birds as they hunt (I know a curlew is a wading bird but it has a nice feel to the name). Played fairly free to accentuate the swoops and dives in the tune. I don’t read/write music so there may be small timing mistakes but feel free to interpret.
Failte newbie ~ but ~
Arriving brand new to a site you’re unfamiliar with as yet, and starting by just dumping a tune of your own genius ~ that’s not recommended as a good start… May you find much here of interest, and may your relationship to it all grow in understanding ~ and consideration…
Could be worse ceol: Somebody last night posted the Banshee, a note for note plagiarism of Jeremy’s original posting from 2001, as his first and only contribution to the site.
I stopped counting the ones that have done that. I think they sometimes pick up the ABCs, cut-and-paste, from databases that have mined things from here, not realizing when they drop in here, having not bothered to do a basic search from the start, that what they are adding is already here ~ note-for-note, and the same identical layour of ABCs. As you’ve inferred, there are worse things in this world than one person’s oversight of this site’s FAQs and their scrambled egg of a melody… :-P
Well, I like curlews - I can relate to that bit…
