Murphy’s No. 1

Quite a cheery tune.

Re: Murphy’s Waltz Tune

Not the same as the County Clare tune (listed under recordings).

Re: Murphy’s Waltz Tune

Very odd line lengths. Is the notation correct? And the key signature?

Re: Murphy’s Waltz Tune

Obviously not a dance tune with 10 bar and 14 bar parts.
And what happens at the end of the repeat of the first part going into the second part? A two beat bar?

Re: Murphy’s Waltz Tune

The X:1 setting posted here is, at best, very unusual and, quite possibly, simply wrong in various respects. SusanK, did you play this back to yourself before posting it, and, if so, is it really what you intended? Can you, or someone who knows the piece, either amend it or provide some identifying information so it can be checked against its source.

Bazza : I’ll take tune to piano at Glasgow Central Station and spend a short time amending. Since leaving my keyboard in Birmingham in February, I’ve tried to fix tunes in my head and at times failed dismally. Thanks.

Re: Murphy’s Waltz Tune

I have altered key to G major and it makes rather more sense. I go on Internet at library and it does not allow me to play back the tune apparently.
