“Jamesy Gannon’s March” 😏

This may already be here, as I was sure, when a certain member contacted me, that I’d already submitted this here. I did find the transcription from way back when, but I’m not sure if I did it for one of you, who was going to submit it and didn’t, or I just forgot.

The member who contacted me said he was going to transpose it from the Teada recording, but he didn’t say what key. What I’ve given here is pretty much what Teada play. I also think I have it from the fiddle of Michael Gorman.

Teada also play that second lead in simple ~ |: Bd |\ ~

A thank you

‘c’ your brilliant.
Just what the doctor ordered and it’s good to see this tune here.
I think ‘transpose’ was the wrong word (a touch of old age, and word forgetfulness is creeping in more frequently these days) I think transcribe is possibly the one required.

cheers

A word of caution

If you put in "Jamesy Gannon’s" to the data base you will get a different tune and not the one played by Teada on their CD " Inne Amerach.
