Fr. Ca. tune

Fine reel played by ‘Bumblebees’

I have tried to write this tune down, but if you are used to count bars in irish music, it is f****** weird to count bars in french-canadian tunes (for me). I think I succeded, because the midi file I played, sounds OK.

Another name….and the composer

It’s a very popular tune in Quebec. I know it as it was written by accordeoniste Marcel Messervier - "Le Petit Bal a l’Huile"

I’ve changed the ABC, found out that the second part was twice as long as first part.
