Sandy MacIntyre’s Trip to Boston

Hi everyone, I was kind of experimenting with putting this tune on here, if anyone who knows this tune already see’s any problems, I defintily wouldn’t mind hearing about it.

Corrections

You did fine. The only typo is the F that should be lowercase f in the second to last bar of the first half. That’s easy to do (I’m guilty of it all the time).

Otherwise, here’s a convention I rely on to help organize the lead in or pick up notes of a tune.

You can show pick up notes and keep the ending bars intact (all four beats wholly represented) by watching where you put the repeat symbols. To show the pick up notes before the "official" start of the tune, try this:

AF|:E2 CEA,E….

Note that the colon ( : ) tells the tune to repeat _without_ the two pick up notes (AF).

At the other end of each half, you’ll need to account for this. Ending number one (to repeat the first half of the tune) would look like this:

|1 dfec A2 AF:|

and ending number 2 (to continue into the second half of the tune, with different lead in notes) would look like this:

|2 dfec A2 Af|

Note that the repeat symbol (colon) ends the first ending, but not the second. Your second half of the tune then starts with the repeat symbol inside the bar line:

|:eA (3cBA ecBc|….

Hope you don’t need a decoder ring to make sense of all this.

Great tune by the way, written by John Campbell.

"The son of two well-regarded Cape Breton fiddlers, Ronald and Cassie MacIntyre, Sandy MacIntyre inherited a great love of Cape Breton fiddling and has spent the past forty years performing this music as well as teaching fiddle and step-dancing in the city of Toronto. MacIntyre is a regular performer at Down East venues in Toronto such as The Bow & Arrow, The Stonecutters, Quigleys, and The Rose and Thorn. A congenial, gifted teacher, as well as performer, MacIntyre has devoted much of his career to nurturing and passing on the Cape Breton style."

"John Campbell is a fifth-generation Cape Breton Islander who came to the Boston-area in the 1960s and has remained a mainstay in the Canadian-American community. His career began in the dance halls with his father, a respected fiddler. Campbell is a repository of a great tradition of music, a noteworthy composer, and a powerful player. He is considered one of the few remaining practitioners of the Cape Breton style in the Boston scene today."

Does anyone know if this tune is registered re: ‘mechanical licensing’? I can’t find it on SOCAN or ASCAP.
