Road To Mount Tinnie Run

This is in response to a tune request and a chance to get my ABC boots back on.

This is a tune by Ivan Drever (formerly of Wolfstone) and is on one of their early albums.

I got the manuscript transcription from Marc Duff and (judging by the handwriting it was probably originally written out by Alistair McCulloch.

Well the "recordings" listed have just answered that one!

Welcome back to the land of ABCs ~

Damn nice notation Alarum ~
but I’d be sorely tempted to throw in one sharp at the very end:

Ooooh - cheese! Maybe you could do that the last time through before going into a tune in A major. I am not about to change the transcription though - it is not my tune!

I saw Duncan Chisholm and Ivan Drever in Dundee on Thursday night. It was a great show but not very well attended. I think the publicity could have been better. Duncan tells some great stories. They are just like Phil and Aly! 😉

Reelish sounding jig

I obviously have cloth ears this morning 🙁
I clicked on the midi and thought "reel" so I looked at the dots, definately jig.

Oh well, it is monday

Reelish sounding jig

I think it is that long, tied note at the end of the first bar/start of the second that gives it a bit of a reely sound (or at least confuses the tempo) in the first part. The second part of the tune sounds more like a jig though.

It is a great tune. I just need to learn how to play it properly now. 🙁

A dorian

is the mode, the lone F natural not withstanding.
