## Ten comments

### La Partida

La Partida is a venezualan waltz which I heard at a contra dance once and it quickly became a favorite of mine. After endless searching, I found it in Peter Barnes’ compelation "A Little Couple-Dancemusik".

It works wonderfully with flamenco-style guitar accompaniment and is relly much easier to dance to than it is to transcribe.

### Oops

As I alluded to in my first comment, this tune was very difficult for me to tanscribe and there were some mistakes that I didn’t correct before the sheetmusic and sound file went up. I have now fixed them all (I think) in the ABC section.

Find on autoharp Legacy Disk 1 #21 (last cut)

### For the flutes

For some reason, during the cut-and-paste above, my corrections went la-la on a few bars? :-/ Try again ~

### “La Partida” - the low down for the limitation of winds

Here are some other possibilities if your limit is D below the treble staff. The eight bars given for the A-part can also be used as an alternate for the last eight bar conclusion of the B-part, or pick it up as given when the low notes are usually reached, the last 5 bars…
