Key change in B part?

i’ve never heard an “official” version, but the tune is played around here with G naturals in the B part- key change to D, or whatever the equivalent is- I can’t remember what keys i heard it in at the local sessions….


Yes, I forgot the key change

my apologies for that

Jeremy, can you fix the sheetmusic please?

It’s not in A Major, A or B part…

Rash assumption too quickly made ~

Adding those variations, yes, the Gs would be ^G (#)…so A Major… 😏 Back to the punch…

“Dan Curtin’s Slide” ~ I just had to throw in another ^G, in the B-part 😉
