    [QUOTE=JL277z;1651120]My try at transcribing that tune, based on listening to it at half-speed. No guarantees of accuracy! The notes with big question-marks over them, are notes that I wasn't quite sure what they were - some of the question-mark notes might be wrong.

    But I *am* certain that the *timing* is correct, and yeah it's a "crooked" tune alright, for instance the tune's first part has 9 bars instead of the usual 8.

    Mandolin tab & standard notation for what I'm hearing in the Bruce Molsky version of Flowers of Edinburgh:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I like your transcription especially the lower string part of it. Here is the way I have been playing it through this transcription which for the most part is very similar to yours but not all. Thanks!
