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˜‰
