Very nicely done and tabbed...Jack
Thank you. No one does tablatures better than you, so I consider that a high compliment.
That's a great arrangement, Wayne. I especially like the way you catch the 3rd string, 2nd fret at the end of the first full measure, just before you hit the open 2nd string. And the walk down the neck that starts at measure 22 is very cool, also. I'd like to see a piper try to do that!

Thank you Don! It's good to hear from you; I hope you're doing well.
That little passage in the first full measure is kinda' interesting. I decided that the final A-note in the first measure was important for the tune, so that was how I approached it. It ends up just being two successive forward rolls, but for some reason, I had a hard time learning to do it. I guess that when I play a 4-3-1 sequence, my brain wants my thumb to go next to the fifth string, as it has been trained.
The sequence starting at measure 22 involves something that I've been doing a lot in my arrangements. I discovered that if I need to play a melody note on the first string followed by a melody note on the second string, I can do it by using a 1-3-2-5 four note roll pattern in combination with varying left hand positions. That led me to realize that I can also accomplish the same thing by using a 1-3-2-1 four note roll pattern, which of course is just a forward roll sequence starting on the first string. Which four note pattern I use depends upon which finger I need to use next.
