As promised, the third tune in the Iron Horse’s reel set beginning with "The Cape Breton Fiddler’s…". There is one more tune to this set which I will write out soon, and I would extremely grateful for the name of! I have searched high and low for it (that is, I spent several hours googling) to no avail. The Lintie is out there, but appears to feature more regularly as a kind of marching reel done by Pipe brigades. Each to their own, but I prefer it on the fiddle!
By the way, any advice about ornaments and other ABC notation will be appreciated, if given kindly! I am brand new to this, I think it’s a great idea, but I’m bound to be making mistakes!
By the way, the tune is by Donald McLeod.
I’ve corrected a couple of wrong notes I noticed when the tune was transposed into dots, and also changed the notation for the ornamentation. I wasn’t sure how to write them, but seeing the dots makes me realise that they look much better as triplets than as two accidentals preceding a crochet (though of course the truth of the matter lies somewhere in between…)
