I’m trying to find out the name of this tune.

I transcribed it from a tape a friend gave me of music he used at a scottish dance session. He didn’t know the name of the tune or the artist. A long shot for the name might be the Berkeley Players.

Thanks for your help.

I think there’s a general precedent here at The Session to start a Discussion for unknown (Gan Ainm) tunes without titles.

If the title is known and your looking for a transcription, it can be requested by clicking Tunes, then Requests. As this one doesn’t have a title but you’ve transcribed it, you would start a Discussion thread and see if you get any feedback. If you are still not sure, please read the FAQ’s here-


Tune Name

Having asked around I have a name:

Errors in My Transcription

Thanks again for identifying this tune.

Now I realize my ABC’s are wrong. I set my default note to 1/16 instead of 1/8 so it’s not displaying properly on thesession although it works fine on my machine.

I’ll fix it and change the name.
