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.

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.
