I don’t believe the key is A Dorian. I believe it’s plain old D major. The very last note in the A part is a pick up to go back to the beginning of the tune. Moving on to the b part, there is a f pick up. Instead of the A pick up. Cheers.

Re: CBC’s Glenn And Karl

BUT the key sig only has one sharp, and there are some Cs in the second half, which would nail it if you can find a recording of Jerry Holland playing it: it all hinges on whether the Cs are naturals or sharps.

Re: CBC’s Glenn And Karl

Actually, it SHOULD have two sharps.

Re: CBC’s Glenn And Karl

In which case, yes, D maj.

Re: CBC’s Glenn And Karl

Although I guess I should go back and listen to Jerry’s recording 🙂 I could be wrong, as I sometimes am . Jerry’s yellow book by Paul Crawford has it written in D.

Re: CBC’s Glenn And Karl

Ok, let us know. And should that be Paul Cranford?
