Track 3 from Deiseal’s "The Long Long Note". Cormac Breatnach plays it at eye-watering speed. I’ve created this (in response to Yans D’s recent request) using the Capo app and am currently bashing out the notes at 50% tempo. Hoping to get to 75% some day but 100% is probably beyond my reach! You can play along in this key using an A whistle. Note that lines 3 and 4 are basically a repeat of lines 1 and 2 but I’ve included them separately because there is a small difference second time through.

Re: Raindrops

Well done for that, Alan - a tricky transcription indeed, but shouldn’t all the "c" notes be natural ? In fact, should the whole thing not be in "G", rather than "D" ?

Thanks, Kenny. Yes, a silly mistake, now corrected.

Alan Graham! Thank you for doing what I couldn’t! You’ve done very well with this phenomenal tune.
