Five comments

Mrs. Sampson’s Delight

From the playing of Garry Walsh.

Transposed down from Bbdor.

The A Part reminds me of another tune, cannot remember its’ name. Maybe a polka.

It was tricky to notate this one. Some of his ornaments don’t take well to the midi play back, so have left them out.

Most of these were:
- He rolls the A which crosses over between bars 1 & 2, 5 & 6 of the A Part, and he rolls the A which crosses between bars 13 & 14 of the B Part,
- He rolls the B which crosses an off-beat in the 14th bar of the B Part,
- He preludes each of the back-to-back e-rolls in the B Part with another note, something like "g~e2 d~e2",
- He preludes the first d-roll in the back-to-back d-rolls with another note, some like "e~d2",
- He slides into the a-note of the 11th bar of the B Part,
- His d-rolls in the 1st and 9th bars of B Part sound a bit differently than the rest of his slow and fast rolls

Thanks Nigel, that’s a new one to me.

It’s something about the first two bars, and the 5th & 6th ones. From X2, that sequence of "… EAE | A2A BdB | d2", or, the roughly equivalent phrases of X1.

Mrs. Sampson’s Delight, X:3

Some variations from the playing of Garry Walsh.

Also fixed X1, all of the notes were originally offset by an eighth note, so, most of my original comments are moot.
