"Stybarrow Crag" - C, G & A (G given here)

This can be played as given, with swing, or not. I’ll be adding more later, including a simple straight set, but for now here’s this version with variations in a straight form, with triplets also simplified and the swing (>) and accidentals (^) also removed:

This fulfills one promise, but I have others that have been put on hold while I deal with other things life has thrown our way.

In answer to a couple of queries here at least is some proof that I’m still alive and kickin’, though dealing with being kicked myself, those rough bits life can sometimes throw our way… I’m managing, surviving, for the moment. However, I am also feeling guilt for projects I’m doing for others that have had to be put on hold while I heal those bruises from the kickin’ I’ve had. Apologies for those reponsibilities to others I’ve had to temporarily put aside. Yes, it’s been a long stretch, starting with the suffering of others, stretching back at least a couple of years… Circumstances have been unkind to certain loved ones of ours. I have not forgotten promises made…
