The Acharavi

Here comes "The Acharavi" from Flook’s "Waltzes". It is the second tune in the set. Original it is played on an F Whistle.
I hope the keyand the notation is right. It is a very easy tune to play but very difficult to write down 😉

I think all the "3"s were meant to mean triplets- Triplets should be notated like this: (3AAA

I think a lot of that in there is Brian’s triple-tonguing too, which I usually leave out of the ABCs, because it can make them a little cluttered looking….

Thanks for posting this, though, I’ve been meaning to learn this tune, but now I’ve no excuse!

Sorry. I’ve correct the triplets. Now it works 🙂

Good one, but you’ve still the problem of key signature ~ &

2 d3 e c>G | A2 A>D E>G | A A>D E>G | B4 (3BBA |

2 d3 e c>G | A2 A>D E>G | A2 A>D E>G | B3 |]

Sorry, just a quick check in, back to work…

If it were A Dorian, then all the Fs are ^ by default…

I’d say the key is definitely Amix, though the B part is a nice contrast.

Back for a moment ~ yes! ~ if the Gs are all natural, but it also plays well as A Major with all the Gs ^sharp. Unfortunately I don’t have the recording to know for sure. Either way, a curious change into the B-part, or so it seems…

This tune’s written by Kathryn Tickell

This Tune is actually by Brian Finnegan. It’s a long story and I’m the the right person to tell it but it’s Brians.

^ Sounds like one of his too.
