C# as well, surely?

Also you need another barline at the end of your 1st part.

If there are indeed C#s as well, you can change the key sig to Amix by going to “edit abc” before this gets converted to sheetmusic.

Dow, you’re right, there are C#‘s. Just checked by listening to Back of the Moon’s version.


That’s the first tune I’ve submitted, so was expecting to need some help… Never used ABC notation before. Have sorted the grouping and the lead-ins, with thanks to ceolachan, and have changed the key too. Hope that all looks ok now…

GHBP tune by A.MacDonald of the City of Glasgow Police Pipe Band as was

Lumsden’s Rant, X:3

This is basically written out from the Back of the Moon version which is a bit more ‘pipey’, the missing third part is added also.
