This tune was recorded in C - played on an F whistle wih A major "fingers".
I believe this was actually played in G major as I received the dots from Sarah Allen herself and it was written in G. I think its a G whistle although I could be wrong. Its much easier to play with "G" fingers as well. I’ll see if I still have it somewhere and post it.
I’m a convert to G
I have to admit that after transcribing this tune in A and working to play it for dances, I gave up and switched to G where it just feels so much better. It’s a fantastic tune for dancing but you need the groove and the speed, and the gymnastics involved in playing in A simply ruin the zen of the tune for me.
I’m happy to hear that herself Sarah thinks of it as a G tune. I imagine Brian could have played the tune on a G whistle with G fingers and had it come out in C as it is on the recording.
Yeah, probably that way… It wouldn’t surprise me if it was played in A on an F flute, though.
It’s a G flute- Another of Pat Olwell’s bamboo flutes.
Does anyone have the music to this in G? Fairly new to the trad scene and if i had to learn this in A I may throw my cap at it!
I too would be very keen for the music transcribed in G if anybody is able to provide it!!
I’ve added it, but in general use another tool to transpose your ABC:
or Google "Transpose ABC" or similar.
