The ABC is apparently in the wrong timing. All single notes should be followed by "2" and all slashes (/) should be deleted.

So the first bar, for example, should now read |A2cA BcdB|

Lovely tune. Where did you find it?

The bungalow

This is a Scottish tune by J. Scott Skinner

Sorry about the confusion in the ABC. The tune is a Scottish reel in 2/4, 16 bars with a pick-up measure; the notes are meant to be mostly 1/16th notes. Many Scottish reels are noted this way to emphasize the high tempo. The site converts it to 4/4 and into 1/8th notes, assuming that all reels are noted thus. It is indeed a Skinner tune. I found it in a great book called the _Scottish Fiddlers’ Session Tunebook_ readily available on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1871931479/qid=1078838451//ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i3_xgl14/002-9900360-4520048?v=glance&s=books&n=507846.

An arrangement of Skinner’s The Bungalow can be heard at

I have arranged it for celtic fiddle ensemble, with 2 fiddle lines, cello line, and chords for comping instruments.

The Weaver MacFarlane Choon Book is a free download of over 40 concert arrangements for this celtic fiddle ensemble. Use the download link at http://cracklingsmarts.com

(The Bungalow will be in the next release of the choon book, but if you want the dots I will email you a pdf (until the next release of the collected arrangements). No charge, just don’t say you wrote the charts.

Re: The Bungalow

Er, well, the 2 tunes were published together! Lots of other Scott Skinner tunes on the Aberdeen University website, free access.
