More Welsh
« on: Nov 23, 2004, 12:44:08 PM »
This tune is also known as Welsh Morris Dance. The Welsh Traditional Music site says it is a triple hornpipe but, Martin, who knows these things, says that they are in 3/2 so, I have adapted it by removing that particular information from the header, since that seems preferable to re-writing the whole thing.

Looks interesting!  I think you could deal with the meter problem by changing default length quarter note and meter to 3/2 thusly:

af ge fd | ec dB cA | B/c/d/B/ A/B/A/G/ A/G/F/E/ | D3 :|

I think this would correspond to the way these are usually written. -Steve

I had thought about dotting the notes but that's not the way (according to my teacher) the Welsh would play a hornpipe so, I've left it straight. Think of it as a Chapel approved version.

3/2 hornpipes are played pretty "straight" in my experience with them (which admittedly isn't that great); have you found differently, peakfiddler?
