How is it that the dots/ABC’s and audio don’t sync?

Jus’ askin! 🧐

Re: There Was An Old Man Who Lived In The Woods

I’m not sure if this is a comment about the audio midi player, or, about the quality of my transcription.

If the former, I’ve heard people make comments like that about midi players from time to time. Suggestion: try copying and pasting the abc’s elsewhere, set Q:1/4=120 or 135, and see if that helps. ABC mandolin used to be good for this.

If the latter, I could triple check the transcription later. I know I doubled checked it several months after originally posting (went back through many of my older posts and did the same actually, but focused a lot on the Nfld singles/polkas). Anyways, I haven’t trascribed much the past few months, so please do let me know if you are unsure about the transcription above.

No relation to the old woman who lived in the woods! (Dubliners) - sorry!
