Slipslide - Stocktons wing

A brilliant slip by Stockton’s wing, which appeared on their album "Celtic roots revival". For some reason I don’t seem to be able to find it performed by anyone else and it doesn’t seem to turn up in many sessions….don’t know why!
There only seems to be one performance of this by Stockton’s wing on Youtube, and you can find it here:

I’m not too expert at the ABC’s….so I hope I’ve got it right…

Beware! Blue pencil!

Bar no. 7 is one eighth too short… and it would be more pleasant to read if you put a space between each triplet. Also, it looks as if some notes were in the wrong 8ve. And a sharp is notated as a ^ before the note. not as a #. And another cosmetic thing, it looks a bit weird when you notate the long rolls in the C part like ff2; better would be something like f2f or ~f3…

So far the ABC critique 🙂
I like it, what a cool tune! And the modal change after the A part… Ah! Lovely.

After a quick check against the YT-clip I tried to polish the ABC a bit; if you give your blessing to it, you can copy/paste it to the ABC-section (just in case you don’t know, you can still edit your ABC). I didn’t change any notes, just some lengths and tildes and spaces and the mentioned 8ve thing.

Using megapop’s transcript…

Z: scaine - the ‘before’

Oops! I forgot to complete the ‘before’…

Thanks Megapop

I accept your corrections, as to be honest, I’m not very up-to-speed with the ABC stuff (I prefer the dots…but there doesn’t seem to be any way of uploading those).
So thanks for the help here! I’ve uploaded your corrected version.

Re: Slipslide

Could really do with a wee favour- just started playing trad and wondering what the wee squiggly line above some notes is- is it like a roll or something?

Re: Slipslide

Yes: in classical music it would be called a turn, defined thus:
TURN: When placed directly above the note, the turn (also known as a gruppetto) indicates a sequence of upper auxiliary note, principal note, lower auxiliary note, and a return to the principal note. When placed to the right of the note, the principal note is played first, followed by the above pattern. Placing a vertical line through the turn symbol or inverting it, it indicates an inverted turn, in which the order of the auxiliary notes is reversed.

Of course, in trad music, it may be different and depend on capabilities of the instrument being played and how the player interprets any ornamentation.

The turn
