Anyone know this ?
Transcribed from a link to "YouTube" provided by member "nufetulf". Matt Molloy plays it before a spectacular version of "Colonel Fraser". Difficult to transcribe because of variations, but this would get you by. Nice tune, I think.
Is it this?

Thanks for the transcription Kenny - very, very useful! Anyone trying to figure out the endless variations gets a really good lesson. Does he tounge ta-ka+cut or does he do cut-tap rolls or cut-cut rolls..? (Retoric, don’t tell me - spoils the fun.)

Matt Molloy tune
I asked Matt himself and he had this to say:
"It’s a composition of mine.written for the 5th special forces group airbourne division (green berets) U.S. army.
It’s called the 5th legion march"
So now we know!
Before I change the title of this, "domnull", tell me that this is not a wind-up of some sort. All seems highly dubious, and if it hadn’t come from someone who I respect as a source on this website, I’d have ignored it. Yet stranger things have happened.
I’ll pm you ! (you doubting Thomas you!)
Thanks to "domnull" for providing the composer’s title.
Wow, it really is called that. Raised an eyebrow I have to admit!
