Key

This is from the album "The Mystery Inch" by David Kosky and Damien O’Kane. I think it is in the key of F# aeolian.

Well, if you haven’t got it …

Re: The Mystery Inch

Composed by David Kosky, banjo and guitar player living near Sheffield, Yorkshire.

The Mystery Inch, X:9

I transcribed this off of Damian O’Kane’s recording in about 2011. Probably played it a thousand times. Great tune.
