Comments:

This is another fine example of Benny Thomasson’s superb hornpipe fiddling. Look out for accidentals, triplets, sixteenth notes, and triplets over sixteenth notes. The tune ends on a potentially difficult double-stop. Thomasson used a little bit of vibrato, which is denoted in the transcription by a squiggly line to the left of notes to be played vibrato. The transcription is probably missing the first pass through the A part; the recording cuts in just before the second pass through what I believe to be the tune’s A part.
