Needed a passing jig

I wrote this little jig to go between Tripping Up the Stairs and Coming Back Up the Stairs. I thought it would be funny to give it an appropriate name for the set, hence, Sliding Down the Bannister. The last two notes should be played with a gliss. I didn’t know how to notate that in ABC.
So now our group has a nice little "stairs" set.

Shouldn’t the C in the fourth bar be an octave higher?

Nail in the bannister

Was there not a tune called "Nail in the bannister" composed by R. Stornaway?

i quite like this: here’s what i play though:

oh by the way i roll the f3 in the b part

C problem

Yes the "C" in the 4th measure should be up an octave. My Bad.

Fixes

OK, I need to get better at the ABC thing. Here’s a fixed (I hope) ABC for this song:
