Forest Baby

The missing link! The last of the tunes from this great album by Brian Finnegan (The Ravishing Genius of Bones) to be submitted to The Session. I’ve brought it up two semitones for ease of playing. Accompaniment seems to be around the key of A minor. I know it’s not really a jig but the tempo is 6/8.

Forest Baby, X:2

Thanks for working out this tune. I’ve refined the ABC for ease of playing - and if you want to play along with Finnegan’s recording you can play this setting on an F whistle.

Re: Forest Baby X:2

Very nice notation! If abc is notated in a good style it will produce sheet notes easy to read even with complicated rythms as here !
