Just learnt this tune last night. Great transcription GM but I make the 2nd note of the 2nd to last bar a G, not an F#.

I concur

Heya, Gian!

So, I went through the trouble of sitting down to transpose this this morning before checking to see that it’s already up on thesession. My version has a few more notes to leave ornaments open to interpretation, but that first G there should definitely be an F#.

Just to mix things up, Gabe McVarish plays the first phrase with G instead of F# entirely: | dA~A2 GAdG | 😉

NB : last times are : dGAd FAdG | AdFA d…, hence the swing between the G & D chords.
