*Notes: There seems to be some confusion about this tune and another, “La Riquerenne” which may or may not be traditional.  According to a comment (and the Steve Fry transcription) contributed via the Suggestion Form, “the actual name is ‘La Ricaneuse’, which translates as ‘the one who snickers’. According to Pascal [Gemme] and Yann [Falquet] at the Flurry Festival 2017, La Riquerenne  means “The Laugher”.

Chords on this transcription are “strictly tentative” according to David Kaynor.
