ABC Format for One Bottle More

Traditional Scots Irish, Ulster Scots music for the fife

This tune is in D Major so all F's are sharp (I've written this out below, so just play it as written and it should be fine).

If you need to check the fingering chart click here, this will open in a new window.

Low Half (played twice).

Intro G E (this is basically an upbeat to come into the first bar)
(1) D B DD B D
(2) D B D D
(3) E D E E D E
(4) E D E F# G G
(5) B A B D' C# D'
(6) E' D' E' G' F#' E'
(7) D' G' D' B A B A
(8) G E E G E (at this point go back and repeat 1 through 7 and then play bar 8*, basically you're playing the G E notes as an upbeat again in the same way you would do at the intro bar)
(8*) G E E

High Half (played twice)

Best way I can figure this is there is a variation in bar 21 second time through the high half. As you go through the high half on the second go through, play bar (21*) instead of bar 21.

(17) D' B D' D' B D'
(18) D' B D' E' F#' G'
(19) D' B D' D' B D'
(20) G' D' B A
(21) G' F#' G' E' D' E'
(21*)G' F#' E' D' C# D' C (natural)
(22) B A B A G B C#
(23) D' G' D' B A B A
(24) G E E
