I was not … since Martinmas

I experienced some problems with timing the tune and not 100% it’s a reel. Any suggested amendment to the melody will be very gratefully received. Hope the next submissions will be a bit less painful to put together.

Still, the tune sounds great (I read it slow and in Gdorian/eolian as opposed to Gmixolydian) a rare one (sometime reminiscent of a Shetland tune I heard on a PhCunningham album i think)
