A nice simple hornpipe from O’Neill’s Dance Music #824

Quick! Change ABC’s before it becomes irreversible!

You forgot to put a repeat symbol before the pickup notes in the "A" part. Also, the "B" part needs pickup notes (I’m assuming it’s 2 eighth notes like the "A" part; sorry I don’t have O’Neill’s handy right now or I could tell you what the notes are) & a repeat synbol before those as well. Nice tune though!

A slightly different version of the tune was recorded as Miss Adams’ on Hidden Fermanagh Vol.1. According to the accompanying book, it appears in The Gunn Book, compiled by fiddler Old John Gunn in 1860s.
