“Dancin’ With My Sweetie” :-)

Which was the case last night. I grabbed hold of her on her way to her very late bath, in the a.m., and started lilting this as we danced around in a barndancey sort of way. Then I remembered the time and the neighbour’s sleeping baby and softened my steps and dropped the B-part down low, but it wouldn’t stay there. As there’s not necessarily the same consideration needed at all times, the B-part could be played up too…

My wife is my all time favourite partner for dancing. I have abused my knees in dance and other madness to the point of having had 75% of the carilege removed from the swinging leg, my right knee. It acts up sometimes and gives me grief ~ but never when dancin’ with my sweetie…

“Dancin’ With My Sweetie” ~ other possibilities

Here’s the B-part raised up, as an option:

“Dancin’ With My Sweetie” ~ last nights gentle rumblings

Here’s taking it down and staying there a little longer ~

Corrections for the above additional transcriptions ~

B-part, bar 6 ~ minor, but there is no need to have repeated the sharp sign for the second D/d#

~ | E^DEG Be^d=d | ~ to simply ~ | E^DEG Bed=d | ~

A-part, bar 2, the straight transcript, a missing natural ~ =e

~ | f^efg fedf | ~ to ~ | f^efg f=edf | ~

1st & 2nd endings ~ A-part ~ [2 [2 ~ corrected to ~ [1 [2

I just saw that the 1st & 2nd endings for the straight version somehow got screwed up… Sorry, I must be still affected by a summer with little sleep… :-/

It wouldn’t surpise me if this were under the influence of others… But, so far, I haven’t made the connections. I’ll leave that up to the likes of slainte and others…
