Great session tune from Edinburgh

Altered ABC’s

Unfortunately the ABCs were altered after my submission, removing minor variations. Slightly annoying. The form that has eventually appeared is the pipe version, where the chanter can’t go below G (in the standard pipe music notation). In sessions the tune is played slightly differently.

Would like to see them

Please, could you post them here?
