A tune that was played at the University of Bristol FolkClub session (The Coach and Horses, Bristol, UK) yesterday evening.
Not a reel of course, but a march in common time.
A traditional tune from the Orkney Islands, Scotland, UK. It takes its name from Gairsay, a island in the Stronsay Firth.
As per X:1, but with my chord setting.
A lovely tune written by W.R. Aim … Do you think your chord setting might have gone a bit astray in the middle of the second part?
Thanks for spotting that, Alistair. Don’t know what went wrong, but something did!
Anyway, re-chorded now (and I’ve also changed the Bmin’s to GMaj’s in the A part. )
Please let me know if OK now - or not!
I’m sure that’s OK now. Wasn’t much wrong with it first time … Just got a bit out of sync.
I’ve just been reading your corrected version in the dining room of the hotel I’m staying at in Amsterdam & humming the melody while "listening" to the chords … Getting some bemused looks from the other diners!
