Walkin’ Ower Da River

An interesting Shetland (Whalsay) tune first recorded in 1971 by Andrew Poleson. This was actually a field recording. It may be the recording that appears on the School of Scottish Studies album of Shetland fiddle music along with a version of Greig’s Pipes.

Re: Walking Ower Da River

5 beats in bar 1 … 4 1/2 in bar 2?

Re: Walking Ower Da River

Alastair, that’s what happens when you remove the double stop square brackets, so as to make it "easier for abc converter", without removing the double stopped notes.

Re: Walking Ower Da River

Coding errors. 5 beats in first bar. Second bar should show a triplet or one less half-note

Should be merged with

Also a note error concerning the B in the third measure of the first part, which I’ve fixed on my setting, but you’ll have to do for your own, unless Jeremy catches it.

Should *not* be merged with

Apologies, the subject line of my previous comment was copied over from my comment on another tune.
