Two For Joy

This is a different tune from the other one of the same name on this site. I heard this at a session in Sussex last year and was told it was written by Paul James of Blowzabella. There is a companion piece - ‘One for Sorrow’ - which I shall also post. The choice of chords is mine, so may not be the same as the original.

(For some reason, this transcript includes some long slur marks which were not intended. Their appearance is one of life’s mysteries).

Hmm. Something odd here: clicking on ‘Sheet Music’ just brings up the first line, but clicking on ‘Print’ reveals the complete work. Another mystery?

Re: Two For Joy

Did Blowzabella record this? Is played as a set with one for sorrow?

Re: Two For Joy

I picked up ‘One for Sorrow’ and ‘Two for Joy’ at a session - where they were played as a pair - and don’t know whether Blowzabella recorded them, but I dare say there’s a discography on the web somewhere that would say.

As noted above, there were some minor glitches in the way this one came up when I submitted it, so I’ll post a corrected version soon.

This file has now been updated to iron out one or two oddities. I really do believe it’s correct now.
