Coridinio

Trial and error with ABC notation to get a (as good as I can anyway) transcription of Sharon Shannon’s Coridinio taken from "A woman’s Heart" album. Any suggestions for improvement would be greatly appreciated. The tune alternates to Gminor for the second part.

Thank you for this tune - I’ve been meaning to transcribe it for ages. I have, however, moved the barlines one beat further in - ie taking the first two quavers as an upbeat - it just seems to flow better for me. I also made a few changes to the middle section but your version saved me loads of time!

This is a great Tune. I corrected a few mistakes in Timing for its an upbeat of 3 quavers.Here is my version of the ABC:

Coridinio, X:3

Setting for mouth whistling.

This setting is in the best key I can whistle the tune with my mouth without having to do any change of octave. If I whistle it in G as played by Sharon Shannon I have to whistle the first two parts one octave higher.

I’m happy to discover that this key is one of the very common Irish session keys and I think it is pretty playable by a few Irish session instruments. The setting is in the same octave as the whistling, that goes pretty high. But I believe fiddles, banjos, mandolins and accordions can play everything one octave lower. It goes down to the low G.

Regarding the melody line, it is the same as setting X:2 but removing the semiquavers. I’ve seen people with a whistling technique (warbling) that could be used instead of the machine-gun that Sharon Shannon plays, but that is not my case. I wish I could.

Re: Coridinio

I am very interested in the origin of this tune, I think it belongs to the Portuguese Traditional Music.
