The Gamekeeper’s Cottage

Worthington Lewallen asked very nicely if someone could notate this tune composed by Jenna Reid from the video below. I’ve quickly sketched it out, and I think that’s roughly what’s being played. Very nice tune, by the way.

The sheetmusic looks perfectat the editing stage, but it’s a mess when it’s published. Any ideas how to fix it?

Hi Nigel,

You just beated me with a few minutes, I was figuring out the same lay-out problem. The melody line isn’t that complicated to write out but the rhythm is confusing for those who never played this kind of metronomic change . In classical music you encounter this with a certain regularity. 😉

Cheers

In print modus it seems fine too. Didn’t find the solution till now

@Nigel: The trick is to always put the time signature change on a separate line. (I was struggling with the same issue a couple of days ago.)

…or enclose it in square brackets (Thanks, stefanremy 😉 )

CreadurMawnOrganig: "Nigel: The trick is to always put the time signature change on a separate line…"

I had done that, and while it worked in the editing stage, once it was published it didn’t. Anyway, thanks to both you and stefanremy for the solution - seems to be OK now.

Nice, guys - thanks for posting this and the video. Great tune.

It’s a relief to see that. I was doing OK learning the tune until I started trying to write it down. Too hard. Thanks guys, expecially to Nigel for setting it out with the phrases lined up 🙂.

Perfect!

Thank you guys so much! You both hit it to a T! Very nice job!

Fiddle Frenzy 2014 Version

Re: The Gamekeeper’s Cottage

Yes, I also have a copy given out by Jenna herself at Blazin’ in Beauly in 2014, not quite the same as X3 above. And the A part goes straight into the B part, so you don’t need the minim rest in bar 10.
(I was somewhere in that crowd playing in the video too!)
I can understand how difficult it must be to transcribe by ear, especially the B part where it keeps changing from 2/4 to 3/4! Afraid I don’t do ABC, so can only tell you what I’ve got in the notation.
In my copy, from bar 11, it goes 2/4 2/4 3/4 3/4
2/4 2/4 3/4 3/4
2/4 2/4 3/4 3/4
3/4 3/4 2/4 3/4 (back to the A part on 3rd beat)
