Forbes Morrison

This transcription was taken from the Traditional Tune Archive; I will post my own as X:2. It’s a James Scott Skinner tune that I decided to add because it is played on Francie and Mickey Byrne’s Ceol na dTéad as "Agnes Campbell", from which version I made the transcription for X:2.

Forbes Morrison, X:2

Francie and Mickey Byrne’s "Agnes Campbell", clearly a Donegal version of this tune,and an interesting comparison.

Forbes Morrison, X:3

My own transcription of James Scott Skinner’s playing on "The Strathspey King", track 17, last tune.
