Notation

The ABC seems to be a bit crooked. Wouldn’t this be more accurate?

And a bit syncopated it reminds me of a Flemish / Dutch / Scandinavian tune. The title is sadly sunk into the deeper parts of my memory, and fails to pop up.

Bob from Braintree, Essex, UK - it would be considerate and valued for you to leave some kind of comment on this one, and to correct it if there’s a problem, as mayoman has suggested and tried to offer some help with.

C: ??? ~ who is the composer, the source?

That information would also be welcomed, giving credit to sources.

WOW! ~ what a mess ~ πŸ˜›

Using your notation without changing anything except making the notes closer to what Viv is bowing… And, it was composed for the Peter Barnes I’ve linked to above…

Thanks for all your helpful comments people. Apologies that my first attempt at uploading a tune to this site was a bit of a mess! ceolachan is right about composer etc. Erm - not sure how to add composer’s name on site though! I seem to be able to edit basic detaiuls and ABC only. Any ideas how I get to edit the optional fields?

C: composer

‘Comments’ is a fine place to turn that light on. Extra headers are on the whole not part of the submission process on site here, Jeremy preferring to keep it basic, leaving it up to us to add additional information, like the composer, here in the comments…

Don’t be shy to ask folk here for help with ABCs if you are at all unsure. There are plenty of fine folk willing to lend a hand, whether or not they like the tune. πŸ˜€
