Ocean Child

Outstanding tune written by Brian Finnegan for Yoko Nozaki. He plays it in Ab minor on Ancora. Played on an F# flute maybe? Transcribed in Emin here. Some of the syncopation is tricky to transcribe - I’ve done my best but you’d be better off listening to it.

Re: Ocean Child

Thnx you so much for the tune. Must be a very very hard work to transcribe that!
About the tune, i think that Brian use his E maj low whistle to play it. So the tune must be (thinking on D whistle) in F#minor (dorian) and not in E minor (dorian). Can you upload another version in F#? :D thnx you so much!

Re: Ocean Child

Ocean Child

In F# might be the right tone, but, we need to ask to Brian Finnegan :D

Re: Ocean Child

Yeah it’s not perfect, but works pretty well. You just had to manually change the key signature, that’s all.
