Difyrrwch Gwyr Dyfi

is the Welsh name ofthe Tune. Dyfi sometimes appearing spelt as; Dufi.
I Was surprised not to find this tune here already as it’s a popular jig especially following on from Chwi fechgan Glan Ffri.(You young and carefree lads.)
The 2nd part I’ve seen notated as; e/f/ | ggg fff | but i think that the ABC here brings out the feeling. Hard not to play it to fast.

O.K. that don’t work either..

so go to youtube and search for, folkmusik fron wales-underbar.

Search for

Go to youtube and search for chwi fechgyn …..this works!

Second part - cock up.

The 2nd part should read;…..

……ef | g2 g f2 f | etc,

can’t believe i messed that up, must be twp.
Iv’e now adjusted the ABC notation to reflect this.

Where I am, the 2nd part tends to get played a bit differently:

|: ede gfe | ded B2B | ede gfe | dBB B2 B/c/ |
ded dcB | cAA A2 G/F/ | GAB cAB | GEE E2 e/f/ :|

I don’t know whether this is a legitimate variant or just somebody’s mistake that’s been perpetuated.
