The Dreaming Of The Bones

One of Davy Spillane’s gorgeous slow airs that I’ve transcribed as accurately as I can. As ever he includes lots of slides which don’t appear in the music but are shown as J or !slide! within the notation.

The Dreaming Of The Bones, X:2

A more thorough attempt at transcribing the tune, though later on there’s so much processing and added effects that it becomes difficult. Nevertheless I love its haunting mystical qualities. There are four parts to the tune and the pattern goes something like:
A A B A B A C C D. Slides are shown as J and reverse slides as >.
