John Of The Glen

I made this transcription according to the recording of The Songs Of The Irish Whistle 2. It’s not a reel, but rather a Slow Air. But The Session still only allows a limited number of tune types…

Corrected ABC

Hmmm. Like the poster’s other contribution (Homesteaders) to the SOTIW2 album, this one doesn’t quite understand the idea of pick-up notes and bar lines.

Joanie Madden plays essentially a 4/4-feel version of the 3/4 "waltz" air transcription here: https://thesession.org/tunes/8284

Re: John Of The Glen

Once again, thanks for correcting. I posted those two transcripts when I was just starting to learn music (10 years ago) and I’m sorry for the incorrections.
