Flook transcription, a short journey # 1

I was very very impressed when I first listened to flook, their cd “flatfish” is my favourite cd (and I have over 300 irish music cds). And this tune (also the second), the first of two in the set “happy jigs” sounds just like HAPPY!!! I don´t know if the variations are planified by them or if they are so good that they improvise all.
I spent about two or three hours (maybe more) some years ago to transcribe both tunes, they are played with F flutes/whistles so I play along with the cd with one generation f whistle. I can´t think while playing it any other thing that “I wish it would never end…”
So I don´t know if this kind of transcriptions are welcome in “the session” but I think it will be an incredible present for people learning tin whistle or flute, I think it is ok sometimes to see what Brian Finnegan and company are really playing, just to learn and practice. The triplets (d/2d/2d) can be played by tonguing tkt, but I´m not sure it´s the way they are played in the cd, but is a good way to play it for normal people. In the cd they sound incredible, like something you can´t say how is done.
I will transcribe also the second part, if it´s ok for you.

Lovely

A short journey (part I) is already here!!It’s worth doing a search b4 you post a tune,cos your version will now be deleted.You can post your version as variation in the comments I think!

Different tune from the one posted

I´ve seen the tune posted but is the second part of happy jigs set, this tune is different is the first part. But I´m not sure if it is the "a short journey # 1" or "a short journey # 2".

Simplify? I think so…
