I transcribed this out a la new O’Neill’s style writing out the short & long rolls. So it may be busy to the eye but all in all it’s a pretty straight forward tune that sounds nice but not too flashy either.

Martin Wynne’s No. 1

This is generally known as Martin Wynne’s No. 1. Philippe Varlet says it was composed about 1935.

Here’s a simpler setting of the tune I learned from a fiddler last summer:

K: Dmaj
AF~F2 GE~E2|F2AF EFDB,|A,B,DE ~F3B|ABde fedB|
AF~F2 GE~E2|F2AF EFDB,|A,B,DE ~F3B|1 ABde fddB:|2 ABde fdd2||
f2af gfeg|fedf edBc|dBAF DEFB|ABde fe~e2|
f2af gfeg|fedf edBc|dBAF D3B|1 ABde fdd2:|2 ABde fddB|

I think this is a very clever composition, though not best for flute or whistle.

The Bothy Band recording of this tune live is AMAZING

Date?

JSC, where does Varlet give that date?
