I’ve also found a clearer version on another site that I can’t find back for the moment, in spite of a long search.
Not that difficult to play ; the [c’]s are always performed with the fo(u)rth finger, with a short glissando towards the [b]s. At least, this is what was on the original sheets. However, the version here is a bit more friendly, with a 2x quicker feet.
I first made it for myself, and I think it’s now easier to read and work, then I post it simplified. Hope the ABCs are not so bad. 😉
