Lovely but funky Flook tune
What time signature should this tune be written in? It seems that 9/8 fits the flow - with sets of triplets - but being Scandanivian (actually Finnish) in origin I’m sure there’s some other more standard tempo.
The recording has the tune in Eb, though it’s played on Bb instruments in the key of G. If you want to play a long with the record transpose down 3 half-steps. Or get a Bb whistle.
In Eb, the chords actually work best when played out of the key of D capoed up one fret. Again you’ll need to transpose …
No matter how you play it, it’s a lovely tune!
Originally called “Eräänä kauniina päivänä”
This tune was originally written by viola, fiddle, nyckelharpa and harmonium player Esko Järvelä from the Finnish group Frigg.
On the Frigg-recording you find this tune recorded in G-major - so you can play along to it using a D-Whistle.
Very nicely transcribed!
On One Beautiful Day, X:2
As recorded by the Finnish folk band "Frigg".
Composed by Esko Järvelä.
Another way to transcribe it, not seeing it as a Slip Jig, but rather a Waltz/Polska.
