Composition of Paddy O’Brien (1922 - 1991).

This setting is very much inspired by the playing of Pat Barton. For ornamentation I used triplets and cuts. The notes I used for the cuts are the ones that I would use with a diatonic harmonica in G (not sure if they would be the same notes with the box, I cannot get them by ear).

This is what I used for the transcription:
