I transcribed this direct from the recording:

A couple of variations for bar 4: |dBAB AGEA| or |eddB ADBA|

Not one of my favourite tunes, I have to say. I find it to be very twee-sounding, and that jazzy improvised bit at the end is even more annoying than the tune itself…

Sorry, if that doesn’t work in a converter try this

Live version at Big Whistle Festival Feb 2013

This transcription is from a live recording of Hamish Napier & Marc Duff from a concert at the Big Whistle Festival in Feb 2013. Hamish Napier was playing a Low F whistle. The recording can be found at http://www.hamishnapier.com/projects/marc-duff-hamish-napier-duo/. One of my favourite tunes on a Low F.
