Maguire and Paterson

A lovely waltz I first heard on Sharon Shannon’s ‘Out the Gap’ CD. The abc is via Nottingham Folk Database, which has a good selection of material.

Composer

Written by Robbie Overson of Scullion? So I have been told.

Yes but it is bad annoted. All durations have to be multiplied per 2…

- sorry - I tested the ABC first using L:1/4, which gives the required annotation. I slipped up when I put the header into here (I think it’s because I’m so used to using L:1/8 for jigs and reels).

RoLuPiN - Just replace L:1/8 with L:1/4 and you’ll be OK

Jeremy - any chance of reconverting the ABC Using L:1/4 ?

why is this a walt? it looks more like a 6/8 jig with a dotted eighth+sixteenth rhythm added…

Because it has been written out incorrectly. It is a waltz. Divide each bar in half, change the quavers to crotchets and the note length to 1/4 (as already said) and you begin to get somewhere.

Some funny things going on here - yes, I wrongly put L:1/8 in the ABC instead of L:1/4 but my barlines were correct (for L:1/4). Alternate barlines have been (automatically?) removed, maybe because of the L:1/8

It’s a pity a submitter cannot (?) edit the header as well as the ABC

Anyway, here’s the ABC as intended:

Sorry about the grief :-(

Maguire & Paterson written out for niamh mcgrath

I think your bar lines went a little skew - here is the tune in 3/4 for you.
