Four comments

From Bohola 4

This is my transcription from Bohola 4, and my first submission here, and my first translation into ABC. It follows "Callipygian" in the set. When transcribing tunes that get played several different ways I try to get the most playable average, or at least the most easily transcribable, which usually works out to be the way I play it, at least at first.

Another version

I can’t remember where I heard this setting, but the parts are switched around.

Re: Hoban’s On 63rd

Hi All, This tune is a mixed up version of Tom Hackett’s Dream. Composed by Owen Hackett, Irish Banjo Player, and first recorded by the Boy’s of the Lough in 1980 on vinyl. and by many Artists/ Groups /Bands since. I would appreciate if this version could be removed from the Sessions. as it distorts the original tune which I wrote for my Dad, Tom Hackett.
I have written a banjo tutor and have a book of about 80 tunes almost ready to publish. also you can listen to a few of my tunes on main page of my website. I think there’s a few of my tunes on the session.
I have the tunes in PDF format, but I’m not sure how to sell the book this way. Any Ideas? I have the book on my own Samsung Tablet. (so I can remember them). Thanks, Owen Hackett.

Re: Hoban’s On 63rd

Hi Owen. If you want to have a setting of your tune removed, you’d have to send an email to Jeremy the site owner, and ask him to do so. He might not pick up on it as a comment in a discussion.
Also, if you’re looking for advice on how to sell your tunebook in PDF format, I’d suggest you post that request as a "Discussion". I’m sure someone here would be able to help. Best of luck with the book when it comes out. Kenny.
