The Strawberry Blosom

This grand wee Fifin’ tune can be found in Gary Hasting’s book ‘with Fife and Drum’ - tune No. 46.

It has an ‘interesting’ high d in the 2nd & 6th bars.

I think maybe you screwed up the ABC on the "interesting" high notes? At least, I’m not seeing any notably high notes in there…

Thanks Sol.
I’ve changed that on the ABC now so that the d & c in the 2nd & 6th bars are now above the regular range, but I’m not sure if this will be corrected by Jeremy?
