The only changes I’ve made are to move the e and D from the end to lead-ins, removing 1st and 2nd endings from Breathnach’s transcription…

Oops! Where did that space come from? You’ll need to connect up K: GMaj with |: e |\ ~ … 😉

At the moment it’s been coming down heavy here, the rain, with some sun and rainbows about too, lovely… I highly recommend a walk in the rain to refresh yourself, or to help when you need a good cry. Music shares similar properties…
