I’m always amazed at how Brian manages to come up with such unique tunes… Love this one, especially the second part.

Retranscribed

I learned this one off Brian Finnegan’s solo album by ear, and transcribed it here for a friend (hey Katie!).

I also made the syncopated bits a bit more obvious in the notation so you can get a clearer feel for the tune based on the dots alone.

This reel is notoriously tricky to learn to play at speed, but its unique rhythm is what makes it so awesome. Any comments on how to transcribe more clearly or more accurately will be appreciated.
