It’s unbelievable how boring a great tune can be made with some "little" changes 😉

Thanks Swiss, that was the idea of twiddling it to death, as an ‘example’ of what not to do, but also showing you could do one here or there, now and then… But ‘excess’ like ‘speed’ kills, including ‘interest’…

"Patrick’s Reel" ~ for the vertically challenged depth wise 😎

~ and a few other options… 😉

^d & ^g

Stop complaining about the accidentals ~ they were Seán’s, and for you winds it’s just a slight move of a finger, how you place it, no tough thing… Oh yes, the one printed notation has that 7th bar of the A-part with a roll ~

Low ~ | ~A,3 B, DEFG | ~

High ~| ~A3 F D2 E/F/G | ~

~ & the ^G can also be cross-fingered, better on some instruments than others…
