I've been working through the Danny Boy sheet music for beginners available here on the site. I know I'm a total noob and feel odd asking this question, but... the last note on the first staff (C) doesn't sound right to me.
If we were singing, it would be the part of the song after 'Oh Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes' where we sing 'are calling'. We descend on the D string with G, F, E#, and then... C on the G string? When I play it sounds too low, like we should have ended on D instead.
Am I completely tone deaf?
EDIT: Here's the link to the sheet music! https://fiddlerman.com/wp-cont.....ny-Boy.pdf
Savannah, First off welcome to Fiddlerman.
I think you may have the lyrics wrong. I found these lyrics on wikipedia.
Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling From glen to glen, and down the mountain side The summer's gone, and all the flow'rs are dying 'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow 'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow Oh, Danny boy, oh, Danny boy, I love you so.
And if you come, and all the flowers are dying If I am dead, as dead as well may be I pray you'll find the place where I am lying And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.
And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me And all my grave will warm and sweeter be And then you'll kneel and whisper that you love me And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.
- or I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.
- or And I shall rest in peace until you come to me.
- or Oh, Danny boy, oh, Danny boy, I love you so.[
re: Kevin, I have the lyrics right, I guess I'm just not good yet at explaining what I'm talking about! 🙂
re: Fiddlerman, here's the link of me playing the first staff! And you're right... E flat, not E sharp!
