“The Trip to Yorkshire” ~ A few examples of variation
~ such as the choice of NNN (BAB) or N2 N (B2 B) or N3 (B3):
A-part, bar 2, the 3rd beat:
| G2 g dBG FED | ~ or ~ | G2 g dBG AFD | ~ or ~ | G2 g dBG FAD |
B-part, bar 2:
| ECE DB,B AFD | ~
& 1, 2 & 3, the first beat, can also start:
| E2 E ~ ~ | ~ or ~ | E2 C ~ ~ | ~ etc…
C-part, bars 1, 2 & 3 , for the BAB’s I sometimes play the A sharp ~ ^A:
|: GAB B>^AB ~ etc.
As common in the tradition bar 3 can mirror bar 1 completely or in part:
~ | G2 B B>AB B>AB | ~ or ~ | GAB BAB BAB | ~ or with the ^A
Endings, the last measure of all three parts offer three different ways to play them out…
Nice one, ‘c’! I’m desperate to go back there for some very personal reason.
