The Funny Mistake

Straight out of O’Neill, I’m afraid, but I was surprised not to find it here. All single-note triplets should be ornamented, but I can’t get my ABC to do it.

The Funny Mistake (O’Neill’s Music of Ireland #1146)

a few bum notes there I.B.
here’s O’Neill’s version corrected:

Nice tune

Thanks for posting it!

In your A mix version, it’s fun (if "neo-trad") to tie some of the e’s in the A part thusly:

"Neo-trad"? ~ hmmmm… (actually not so ‘neo’)

Never one to deny a little fun, while I wouldn’t do it all the time, here’s another take following your suggestions and pushing it a few steps further, but using ‘-’ instead of ‘( )’…
