The Midnight Ramble (slide)

Oops - seems to be called The Midnight RAMBLE - sorry about that.

I play The Midnight Rambler on slide guitar!

This seems to be a highland fling/schottische that has had its swing diverted for use as a slide. Not the first such diversion of this form, though more often they’re flattened out to a reel… ;-)

Here’s taking just the basics of Nigel’s transcription there ~

But those last two bars of the B-part are more likely a second ending. I’ll add a highland fling/schottische take on this later, with a links between it and this…

“The Midnight Rambler” ~ highland fling

A first attempt at flinging it about ~ ;-)
