A Niall Vallely composition submitted in response to a request from my lovely friend bb.

Another way to transcribe it is like this:

Not sure exactly which one Niall has in mind when he’s playing it, but it seems to make more sense the way I’ve submitted it if you listen to the way he accents the 1st note of every 2 bar phrase.

Meter?

listening to the actual recording, it sounded to me like a slide… I am not debating that it is in 6, but I’m still learning to distinguish between the two… Can someone explain to me why it’s 6 and not 12?? It would help me learn to listen better if you could… Thanks in advance!:-)
