Charming, lovely tune. I love the way it’s hard to pin down the keynote concept here.

But to make it easier to figure out, why not write it in E mix, with a G sharp, as there are no g’s in the A part at all and all those in the B part are sharp anyway?

Alright, I updated the ABC. Thanks for the tip :)
