Bottle Of Whiskey

Hello all. Here’s my effort to transcribe Bottle Of Whiskey off the Claire Mann Aaron Jones CD SECRET ORDERS. I don’t know whether it’s traditional.
Track 10, third jig in the set. You can listen to it here starting at about 2:32:
Sorry, I’m new at ABC notation and know very little theory, so I’m not really sure of the key. I think it might be A, since there are three sharps. The ABC notation is produced by a tablature converter I use (TablEdit). I love their playing and all three jigs in this set are really nice.

Re: Bottle Of Whiskey

It sounds out in G, with the occasional C#. Might be worth transcribing in that key.

Re: Bottle Of Whiskey

I thought G seemed more appropriate as well, but I didn’t know how to handle that C#. After doing some ABC notation searching, I have placed it in G and forced that C to C# in the notation. I didn’t realize you could override the key signature within the notation itself. I hope this is a proper correction. Thanks.

Re: Bottle Of Whiskey

Yes, but, having changed the key signature, you no longer need to mark all the G notes as natural.

Re: Bottle Of Whiskey

Thanks Jerry, I have made that adjustment now.
