"Missing Time", by Richard Wong. This is a transcription of the first time through in (the amazing) Wullie Scott’s May 2008 recording - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ex8riLq28TI


An accordion piece, and bits of it are a beast on fiddle (my instrument). Only been playing it a few minutes now… I’ll add a fingerboard-friendly setting if I come up with one

I remember requesting this, and then thinking "no one will attempt to transcribe that". I was obviously wrong!

Oh come now M Lh, it isn’t that bad (except for that last measure of A2;) is it? I mean, apparently protz thinks we’re a bunch of wimps. Personally I think Richard (or Wullie? I haven’t heard the authorized setting) did a brilliant job releasing the melody from the confines of the time signature

This tune is still as awesome as ever, even if Will wasn’t a fan!
