Katy wàs waiting

had to transcribe the tune for a friend, so i thought i could just as well put it on here, she doesn’t have to wait anymore …

I would prefer instaed of
|BEE cEE| 1st bar
|BEE cec| or
|BEE cBc|

there is more flow in it like taht !?

Katy’s patience

fair comment, why not?
i actually hardly ever play any tune exactly as i find/put them here in the dots. even the ones i compose myself. it changes with speed, co-sessioneers, surroundings, moods, anything … it’s just a hint of how the tune is LIKE. not strictly how it IS. maybe stuff for a discussion?

Where did you get this tune from?

I’m sorry for all the typos….
My ideas for the first bar is just another possibilitiy fitting better to my taste, style, possibilities, instrument…..
On wind instruments I think the cEE doesn’t work so well, maybe different on the fidlle!
Where is the tune from?

actually i don’t really know where my friend got it from. it is just kind of a distilled version of how he played it to me.

From Kerr’s Merrie Melodies, can’t remember which volume. Has shades of Pat Small’s in it, or vice versa
