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 >.

Hello Mike , I v been learning this tune lately , and I feel this tune is no need to play by sheet music, the emotions, the feeling ,the deep thoughts, the player got to play by heart.The notes are not hard to catch up.
