Tim Sullivan’s (Barndance)

Got this lovely barndance at Neuchatel session (Ch). I think it was learned off album "Rossinver Braes" by Ben Lennon & Tony O’connell. Simple, nice. Love it.

gilles - that’s just your transcriptions with some traditional notation conventions made, the lead-ins, moving your final f & e to the front, allowing the melody to resolve on the tonic, and adding some rhythmic defining spacing, which generally makes ABC notation an easier and quicker read… On the other hand -

It also goes well in G…

I knew it wouldn’t have been you. Lots of rolls, no triplets, no swing signs, the anacrusis in a sensible place - no way was it ever a ‘c’ transcription, lol!

3 at last, 3 at last ~
