Two comments

From the second track of Goodnight Ginger by John McCusker. I’ve had to miss out several semiquaver’s (16th notes) in this transcription as I can find no way of putting them in when they’re straight and not dotted… Is there a way of doing this without doubling the time signature of the whole tune?

Followup

Love this tune! Played by John McCusker with such energy and character. Here’s my take on a transcript, trying to be as true to the original as I can make it (with a tip of the hat to ordban for getting it started). I note that on all the long (half-note) A notes he doubles the A (4th finger on D string).
