Lusignac

Here is my transcription of that nice waltz from Chris Wood. Listennig to the three versions from Wood & Cutting, May Monday and Stewart & Bourgault will give you plenty of variations for the endings, that I’ve simplified here on purpose.
The high notes may be a challenge for some instruments (I think in particular of flutes), but the result is worth the effort.

It has a 3/8 bourree feel about it… That’s what I’d dance to it, rather than a waltz…

Without changing your notes any, you do need to group them differently for any 3/ tune, at present your grouping is as for 6/ ~

3/8 bourree

I don’t know for the bourree, I really think it in terms of a waltz when I play it (that’s maybe what really makes it a waltz). However, the link on youtube has definitely a bourree feel, I agree (they’re amazing musicians !).
If you listen to the version played by Karen Tweed (or Calum Stewart), there’s no mistaking it for any other dance that a waltz ๐Ÿ™‚. Still, ABC rewritten as you hinted, thanks.

It’s all down to tempo, and it makes a lovely waltz too, dreamy… ;=)

Whao! My nose is bent out of shape. Must be that virtual ‘Glasgow Kiss’ someone gave me recently… I should have ducked… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lusignac, X:2

Awesome waltz, playing it in Gmin is so weird on the flute when Bmin is (still hard but) somewhat accessible.
My version is inspired by Calum Stewart’s, perfect for working on articulation and third octave c# and d wich I play [c# = oxx oxo + c key] and [d = oxx ooo + ckey].
