This is the opening tune of the second set from New Yorker fiddler Haley Richardson’s debut album ‘Heart on a String’. It’s a beautiful tune composed by Haley herself. Haley is a fantastic young musician, recording this first album at only 12 years old. I recommend that you have a listen here -
I had a bit of trouble getting the B part down. The bars just weren’t adding up until I had a better listen and I think, as I’ve transcribed it, that there are 2 bars that go into 6/8 (or one bar of 12/8 like in a slide maybe?). If I’m wrong I’m sure someone will be able to pull me up on it.
Haley plays the tune with a quirkey variation in the A part the second time through which I didn’t include here. I’ll see if I can get it down soon.
