So let me start off by saying I did not originally compose this piece (obviously lol) and I am not sure of the copyright 'legalities' so Pierre, if this raises a flag I'll understand if it has to be taken down.  I decided to transcribe a score of the version that Taylor Davis plays of this song as I haven't seen one anywhere and got tired of trying to match by ear.  If anyone is like me, having a copy to read from definitely helps.  I left out the extra variations to emotion so that anyone can interpret as they wish.  For those who like to have a reference, here is the video on youtube of Taylor Davis playing:




The only method I could find to share the sheet was using my Google Drive, should stay live until I can find a different way to get it on here.  Here's the link to the score:

She did a beautiful job.  Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Chris, that is certainly a haunting melody.

I've downloaded a score from MuseScore (for cello, but I'm sure there are violin versions as well).

She does an awesome job with it doesn't she?


If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

@Robyn.fnq , She does do a great job especially with the emotion she puts in to each piece that's played.  Definitely one of the main reasons I tend to try to learn songs she plays.  I guess kind of an inspiration in a way :) .  There's a link to the violin score that I made based off of her playing the melody, below the video.  Thanks to @RosinedUp and @ratvn for the group brainstorm of figuring out the key which it lies in lol. I should have put the link to the score above the video to make it more obvious and accessible to grab lol.

The music might be great but the use of bow is better.  Most amateurs never even reach the extremes of the bow ( including me)

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
