McEvoy’s No. 2

Transcribed from the playing of Conor McCarthy and Christy Barry on their CD "Late…in the Night." The liner notes don’t say where they got this tune or who might have composed it. I like its twists and turns, as much in G Dorian as it is in G major.

Will, that 2nd F in bar 2 comes out wrong in the midi. Sounds as though it should be Fnat. With abc, if the octave changes then it defaults back to the key sig. (From Dow via bb’s identity).

Weird. Yes, it’s supposed to be F nat in the lower octave as well. I ran it through the Tune-o-Tron and it came out fine as typed.

So what’s it like "being bb"? A bit Malkovichian? 🙂
