The Big Fiddle

From Michael McGoldrick’s track Trip to Nova Scotia, on Arc.

Possibly more a 3/4 tune, but easier for me to transcribe like this!

Re: The Big Fiddle

This is quite a surprise for me to see this tune in 3/2.
Isn’t it played as a reel on the record?
Never thought different, even learned it on my flute recently and put it together with two other Mike’s reels - no contradiction.
But anyway, thanks for transcribing!

@Viking of St.Peterburg
It’s what some people might call a "slip reel", you could write it either in 3/2 or 6/4 I guess.

Re: The Big Fiddle

Looks like a 3/2 hornpipe to me. A 6/4 time sig would change the emphasis/timing of it.
