Tune by Ross Couper. Actually in F#minor.

Re: Strictly Sambuca

@Doug - can you see to it that the key in the ABC’s for your original setting is reset to F#min? (I don’t know if that can be done at this point, but please do, if you can.) …. neat tune, though … and a slight challenge to play without keys.

@JACKB - thanks for the Emin transcription. (Maybe change your key, too, to Emin?)

@everyone and no one — These changes aren’t really important to the sharps and flats in the computer printed score, I know, but not having the proper modal key coded in the ABC’s drops information that is part of the essence of what the tune is. The ABCs are meant to be a stand-alone archive and guide to a tune, not just code for a computer to interpret into notation … OK, no flames, please, and certainly let’s not start the whole Keys debate from 4 years ago all over again. (Shudder.) This is all IMHO. Ignore me if this all seems rather like a dead horse.

Re: Strictly Sambuca

@nhflute Unfortunately the session doesn’t allow F# minor as the key as far as I can figure out. A major was as close as I could get. Kinda new to transcribing tunes on here though, so if you know a way, let me know and I’ll gladly change it.
