Again another reel from the munster pipers vol I . 115 James Goodman manuscripts ITMA

@ Mix O’Lydian : Did the search (title and abc) but nothing showed up. Would have posted it as another setting otherwise. Could this be corrected? Jeremy?

stefanremy: " … Did the search (title and abc) but nothing showed up."

I’ve hit the same problem myself. For some reason, a search from within session.org won’t always find an alt title.

However, a Google search invariably will do:

For example, using these search words …

session.org tunes johnny France

… Google will find it!

To have your new setting moved you will need to send a message to Jeremy.

I hope this setting comes close to the slow version which I like personally very much..

@Mix O’Lydian made my request to Jeremy.

Johnny’s Gone To France, X:4

This is the way I’ve always heard it. The two 16ths 8th figures are played with separate bow strokes.
