Here's a fine old Scottish dance tune - The Dashing White Sergeant.

I've transcribed this into MuseScore from a midi file found on 8notes.com.

Attached you'll find the sheet, a synthesized play-along and of course the MuseScore file itself if you want to adapt it...

Enjoy...

[ Oddly enough - a fiddle friend violin_girlwas around yesterday and we played a few tunes together.   Then we just noodled around each playing pieces the other was unaware of, or didn't know.   I started to play "Dixie" and Trishia said "That's not the Dashing White Sergeant" is it ?    LOL - no - but it starts in exactly the same way...  Now I know I am NEVER gonna play EITHER of these two tunes without getting them mixed up.  THANKS A LOT !!! roflol .....   We had a great time ! ]

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

I love how so many tunes borrow from each other. Very neat, thanks for sharing! I will have to give it a try sometime 😀
