Re: The Squirrel’s Nest - A and B parts are reversed

This transcription is true to the recording but has got the A and B parts reversed. (Note that the recording starts on the B part and ends on the B part). In an email to someone in our community from John McEvoy himself, he stated that in fact the lower part is the A part.
