I got this recently from a Shooglenifty album. I realize the 1st and 2nd endings are unusually long but I just wanted to include as many of the melodic variations as I could that I heard them play.

Key Signature

Shooglenifty play in A Major. Could please transpose and repost

Re: Bancroft’s Descent

On ‘A Whisky Kiss’ the tune is actually played in E. But if you take Dr. Tøm ‘s setting in A and shift it over one string it’ll be fine. Well, that’s if you’re a strings player…

Bancroft’s Descent, X:3

In E for any Shooglenifty playalongs
