Thank you for the feedback there folks @ELCB @stringy @AndrewH @Mark, and thanks for all the other contributions on the "Mixed Time Signatures" thread.  It didn't worry me at all, but the discussion was interesting !

I'm going to get around soon to finishing up the scored B-part, and do an improved take on the piece, and of course, share the sheet !

Thanks all, it's been a lot of fun (and educational into the bargain!) thumbs-up

So - this is a second take at the tune - and a bit of playing-around with it - MUCH more like I heard it in my head...

Sheet to come... (I had it completed, but accidentally deleted the finished version... duh...)

Aww, you're too kind @stringy - but much appreciated!  Glad you and your good lady enjoyed it.   That warms my heart - I generally play music for my own amusement, but when it also brings pleasure to others - well - that's a bonus !!!   Makes me wanna dancing LOL and TY !

Cheers @Mark - yup, its more or less how I wanted it to sound.  Any further evolution will not move far from that take and probably be limited to variations in the use of drone and/or DStops....  But that's the player's prerogative anyway - being a fiddle tune the sheet isn't much more than a guide/suggestion!  LOL

P.S. - The tune title has been revised. Originally, simply named "The Rowan Tree", I was well aware of at least two other tunes of that name - one a pipe band march (sometimes played as a reel), and another being an English folk tune. There is, as far as I know neither copyright nor trademark on that particular tune title, but to provide disambiguation, I have renamed the piece to "Rowan Tree Revival". It is in fact based on an actual rowan tree in our garden, which three years ago had already grown to enormous proportions, and was being damaged simply by the weight of its own very long, and heavy, overhanging branches. The following three years, it has been subject to "major surgery", and has been cut back to a fraction of its size - it has been revived!

So that's where the tune title comes from !

I have some recording and various video editing tasks to do today - but I promise, the sheet for Rowan Tree Revival will appear shortly !

Hahahaha - well done hats_off

Well, sir - @stringy - I recognised the "rowan tree" (from the few words of gaelic my old man passed down to me!) - but - much to my everlasting shame I couldn't make head nor tails of the "revival" / "rebirth" part (which I guessed at, then looked up!).  And the "shame" is on me as a Scot - I could have put the title in any one of 5 other languages - but failed with my own....  facepalm  D'oh....
