The Sturgeon

The Sturgeon (composed by Randal Bays), from 2008 album “Fingal”. I’ve committed myself to add every tune I know in my tunebook: I couldn’t find this three part jig anywhere else, so here’s a quick transcription

Re: The Sturgeon

Thanks so much for the transcription, it’s such a lovely tune. I’ve thought many times about transcribing it but never had the motivation haha. I think in the 2nd & 6th bars of the last part it should always be fdB instead of fdA though? At least that’s how Fingal play it.

Re: The Sturgeon

Yup, you’re right 🙂
