Re: Oblique

On the Buille 2 CD, the tune is in F minor, or some F modal key. That is, a half tone higher than the first version of sheet music with a G sharp in the key signature. Or a half tone lower than the one with 3 sharps, labeled A maj. But I don’t mind playing it in either of those, which are easier than the way it is recorded.

Oblique, X:6

well, as long as it’s accepted by the system, here is the F min version referred to by bschil, and it’s how Niall ntated it in his tune book. Sound great in this key, just practice a little to get yor fingers around it 🙂l

Oblique, X:8

I know it’s not in B minor, but I didn’t see the right key signature, so that’s where it ended up…
I took out the rests and replaced them with dotted quarters but if you like, you can play them like ‘BBB’ instead of ‘B3’ (for example)! 🙂
