Five comments

Info

I was inspired by the ritual of the Tucandeira(Bullet Ant) of the Indians Saterés-Maués, from the Brazilian Amazon region to compose this tune. Despites of being a reel, I believe that is more interesting to play it in a moderate rhythm emphasizing the "jumps"; in 190 Bpm it is cool.

ABC grouping

I have sorted out the ABC because the sheetmusic looks frankly chaotic

Final Version

Thanks Dee-Jav-Eff, you right, it was really chaotic. I am not good with musical theory but after some studies I rearrange the tune to fit it best. So, here is above the "final" version. Im just not sure about the key. I only know that "plays" pretty well on ABC Navigator2. Any tip or comments will be really nice.

Thanks.

Final Version

Now I mean the final version as above…sorry about that. I couldn’t fix the post.

Updated

Sorry for any inconvenience but the tune was updated on its last time on X1.
