Got this from the Skye Collection. Page 112, first tune.

Has quite an odd rhythm for me, it doesn’t quite stick..

Cheers and Baroque obsession,


This piece is actually notated in the Skye Collection as in Cut time (2/2). But the pick up note makes it feel as if it’s played in an off rhythm. Kind of fun as it throws the bodhran player into a capital letter snit.

Fun tune - Thanks for posting it.

(Down at the bottom of page 112, "Bonny Annie" by Donald Dow will cramp your left hand - also in C, in Cut Time.)

Oops -

The second note in both the 9th and 13th bar should be an A rather than a C …
