Queen Esthers

This is from the John Whelan album, Come to the Dance. It’s a cracking tune, goes well after another of his tunes, Dots’ Polka and Bernard Murphy’s.

Queen Esther’s, X:2

To keep it in 2/4, a default length of 1/16 works better. Not sure whether the program will let me change that. Let’s try. Alternatively, all the notes need to be half the current length.

A good tune, certainly, but I can’t spot any difference between X:1 and X:2. Am I missing something?

It could be that craptiger changed his/her original setting. That’s happened before.

Re: Queen Esther’s

Exactly that!
