Waves of Rush

It’s written by Aidan O’Rourke and recorded on Tabache’s album, Waves of Rush.

It’s not in Fmajor - it’s in a minor key - but I couldn’t work out which one… and Fmaj seems to work for the midi file. If anybody knows the correct key then post it please. In the meantime I think I’ll take some theory lessons…

Key Signature

Aah I see the key has been added as Dminor - thanks - another mystery of life solved!

Tune after this

The tune after thsi carol annes reel goes really well with it. Anyone able to transcribe it?

that seems a bit rude now i read over it - i’ll have a go at transcribing it.

Here’s my transcription of the version on the Tabache album. A roll sign denotes rapid triplet type thing because I find it easier to read than N/N/N. The last bar of the 3rd part is played |FGDC D3| by one fiddle and |GADC D3| by the other.
