the ABCs as originally posted ended up with twice as many beats as a measure of 4/4 should have. Changing L:1/16 was a fix for that. Now the measures have been split in two, so that works out, too—at least as far as the math is concerned. I’m not quite sure that squeezing a 3/2 tune into 4/4 serves the piece all that well.
For phrasing’s sake…
I’ve changed it to a 3/2. The ABCs were the same from initial posting up until I changed them to 3/2.
The extra beats in bars 4 and 8 I have posted above are as Dr. Angus MacDonald phrased it. I guess common time isn’t quite right there. 4/2 then?
The Pompous Trousers
I’m playing it as Dr Angus does on "A’ Sireadh Spors", a great tune that has been running round my head for the best past month or so…..
Just to confuse things a little
Here’s the Batties with an arrangement of "A’ Bhriogais Uallach" a commercial job by the looks of it and quite good.
