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.

Re: Bottle Of Whiskey

Claire generously donated this tune to us for “The FluteFling Collection” - see : https://thesession.org/discussions/47267
She provided the following information for the tune notes :
“a jig learned one night from Cathal McConnell at a session in the Central Bar, Edinburgh” - so probably traditional.

Note that it’s Bottle of Whisky…

Re: Bottle Of Whisky

Doesn’t matter much in the great scheme of things, Nigel, but that’s what Claire gave us for the book and I adjusted it here, but I think we would need to ask Cathal about its’ origins, and thereby settle the spelling.
