Sean McGlynn’s Mazurka

This is a great sprawling tune, with four parts & composed by
Eugene O’Donnell
It is on M. Moloney / E. O’Donnell: "Uncommon Bonds"
Playing Order ABCD ABCD A (Finish with part A)
I found it transcribed by Stephan Steiner
The third part is a bit tricky, and for Mandolin/Banjo type GDAE instruments, I found that the trick is to shift up to the fifth position and it’s not too difficult
i.e. (3abc’ ||
111
P: C
||: d’f ad fa | g2 g2 ag | (3fdf ad’ af | e4 (3abc’ |
12 12 21 2 2 12 222 11 12 2 111
| d’f ad fA | (3Bdg b2 ag | (3fad’ Ag ec |1 d4 (3abc’ :|2 d2 cB AG ||
12 12 21 322 1 12 211 23 23 3 111 3 22 23

Where the numbers under the abc denote the string used - it really does avoid having to thrash around the fingerboard like a demented spider, and gives a nice flow to the tune, so give it a try - it’s one of my favourite tunes and I’ve added it to celebrate the addition of the Mazurka to the session
Hope you enjoy it !

Just noticed that my impromtu attempt at fingering by numbers has gone a bit astray during the process - I lined them up during input but they have bunched up a bit - hope they might still be of help!

8 years later I noticed it should read -
Third part - third position - ie at 5th fret
Cheers
