Re: The H Note

Played in Bmin it sounds a bit like a tarantella 🙂

Re: The H Note

it’s not bad in Bminor!

Re: The H Note

Presumably a tune in the key of H (B major) should have 5 sharps? Bars 6 & 7 of the B part sound as if both A’s should be sharp? Anyway, I suspect fiddlers will want to play the tune in A and avoid the high C#!

Re: The H Note

I added one sharp.

Re: The H Note

Transposed to A could it still be called ‘The H Note’, though? Mhm …

Re: The H Note

Thanks for the 5 sharp edit, Gian Marco, and I agree it’s also good in Bm. How about H, Bm, H for 3 times through? If only for a session to try it in …
