The 5th Year

This is an original composition of mine. I am not quite sure that I have the key correct. Please feel free to adjust it as necessary. The tune itself has a nice surprise ending which is why I am questioning the original key choice. I sometimes throw in a high cran in the first measure, second note. The rhythm on the second part takes some getting use to.

The 5th Year

Being new to the abc notation, I’m afraid I am posting tunes which need some editing. Please excuse my enthusiasm and haste.In this tune all of the B’s are natural- hence my previous concerns regarding the key of the tune. The rest looks okay. Sorry ‘bout that.

Re: The Fifth Year

The second part sounds like some trad French songs I know.
It would take very little tweaking if you wanted to make it sound less corky and more trad (Irish)…
