Subject: RE: Tune Req: Bring Us a Barrel (Keith Marsden)

Richard, there's abc code somewhere near the top of this thread, and there's a converter to tadpoles on fences at Mandolin tab net, which will also export your converted score to midi or pdf afterwards.

Youtube has, currently, a video of Ged doing a fair rendition of the song at Swindown Folk club. You have to find your own style in it, though. Me, I find I like the song best when at least the verse has a rolling quality to it; imagine rolling a barrel and singing; it's not going to speed up in speech or stop at the end of a sentence. Push-roll-roll, push-roll-roll, etc. Hard to do on an instrument, so I'd prefer just vocals for this one. But your kilometres may vary.

I hope that's of use,
