This an original tune by me. This is my first time using ABC notation, so I took over an hour to write this down. To hear the song visit my SoundCloud:
https://soundcloud.com/hunter-g/hunters-reel

note: The program I used doesn’t have any Irish instruments, so I used the ones that sounded best out of what it does have.

The recording is now a little different than the sheet music, because I changed some things in the sheets after I did the recording.

I’ve listened to your wee recording, Hunter. I have to say, it’s a fairly decent tune overall, in my opinion. Well done for your first try.

I dig the piano backing, also. Definitely would prefer to hear it on an actual box or some such, though.

The only part of the tune itself I don’t like, is what seems to be the C part. It’s rather disconnected from the rest of the tune, to me.

I wrote (or tried to) game music before coming to this music, so I can definitely say that my first tune attempts were not nearly as successful.

Welcome to thesession.org, anyhow mate! Best of luck with it all…
