Hi Alcuith,

I don't mean this suggestion to sound cheeky but why don't you try working out the melody yourself "by ear"? I realise this is a tricky prospect for many but these are fairly simple tunes and this would be good practice.

I'm not sure if the actual melodies are available in print or not but, in my experience "so called "song books" will only show a very basic melody which may not even be in a key which would suit you for the mandolin as a lot of these books are written with singers in mind.

I'm not entirely certain that the melodies for these songs are completely original and Jim may have adapted existing melodies. Perhaps Nigel or Jack etc could confirm this? However, if this was so, the tunes would still likely differ from the melodies used for the songs.

Perhaps one of the other members might even kindly transcribe them for you? I'd offer myself but I'm not "firing on all cylinders" at the moment. Just glad to be still here.   Smile
