X: 3 T:Walking Through the Heather M:6/8 L:1/8 C:by Andy DeJarlis S:transcribed PLK from DeJarlis LP O:Red River Metis; Scots style jig N:The 4-plet formulation in bars B1 & B5 is certainly odd-looking. But (imo) that's what it N:sounded like; 4 on 3, with a slight delay in the first note. I thought of transcribing N:a quarter-note followed by a triplet of sixteenth notes, but that's not how it sounded.
