To me it sounds as if the whole score it written down one note? Anyone else got that impression?

Sorry, my fault. When I saved it in .bww format I did not correct the configuration first. It should sound fine now.

I had to delete the original post with the out of tune music, then I couldn't put it back at the top of the post. Sorry again.

The version arranged by Mr Rose is very similair to the pre war setting of The Irish Regiment of Canada march past. The 1st. battalion re wrote the tune while fighting in Italy during 1944.
The result, now played is; the tune starts on the high"A" and the lowest note is low "A". No low "G".
Gary Owen is still the match past of The Irish Reg. of Canada. Played regularly by the 2nd Battalion in Sudbury.
I do not know how to place the setting in this (or any) format.
Maybe Ladypiper47 will do it for me. I have mailed her a copy by post.
Cheers, Ken
