Still a novice

Hope this is almost right - I couldn’t find a way to set the time signature to 7/4 so just added it manually at the beginning.

Also, not sure about the bowed triplets and grace notes - is there a better way to notate these?

Composer etc

Should have said - written by Aidan O’Rourke of Lau, and on their excellent Arc Light album.

Working on Salty Boys and Alright in the Heid now…
