“The Moving Note” by Colin Farrell from Make A Note

Hello.
You can hear this song on the first track from the album Make A Note (Colin Farrell, 2o15)
The Moving Note/Settler’s Corner/The Bridge of Finea on SoundCloud :

I liked it as soon as I heard it on an Irish web radio. So I chose it for my first public appearance with my tin whistle next Sunday (May 26, 2019).
On the tin, I add 4 semitones to play it in Gmaj.

I wrote both parts, the first one as simply as possible and the second one trying to render the sounds I hear.
You can add in the header : Q:1/8=390

Please, discover and listen to this tune if you go there 🙂

The Moving Note, X:2

This is another nice tune from Collin Farrel. I have put it in G here although in D an octave lower than the tune above it is also lovely. Originally recorded in E flat. On the B/C accordion in G it is very easy and all on the C row.

The Moving Note, X:3

The video sounds in Bb which is a pretty fiddle friendly key, so I moved the setting that Indi gave us into Bb as it sounds pretty good there (and you can play along with the video that way. (It looks like the mandolin player is playing in G but with a capo at 3rd fret.) Great tune this.
