Yes Anahata, to confirm, that's the source I have.

I think I'm starting to get most of the notes in roughly the right order...... sometimes!

This is the tune as transcribed by Pete Stewart himself which bears out Anahata's version of the tune. Not sure about the accuracy of the stated key signature in the ABC though, looks like Eb to me!

Yes, that's a bit of a howler. It produces the correct three-flats key signature, but no part of the tune sounds in the least like C minor.

The rest of the tune seems to be correct, and there is a sort of logic to the odd leaps, which I have grown to love, so I'll be playing it like that, except for a modification of my own to accommodate an accidental which I only have in the wrong octave (and also I'm doing it all in D)

And here it is, for anyone who's still interested: Blew Bell Hornpipe
