Excel VBA and XML - traversing the nodes

I'm trying to grab data from an XML document and paste them in a 2D structured Excel sheet. I got most of the way there.

This is where I'm stuck.

As you can see, I can read all the text from elements EXCEPT where the data I need to read is an Attribute of an element. There are two at this stage in the development of my application.

That is,
The element 'tie' where the attribute is 'type', and the element 'tied' under the element 'notations' where the attribute is 'type'.
Where it exists, I want to populate the relevant column in my Sheet2. (Columns H and L)

Can someone help please? (I tried hacking various variations of getAttribute but failed as my XML is pretty basic)

I have attached the relevant files. Only 1 sub in the VBA - edit the location of the XML document.

Thanks.

Try this:
            For Each myChild In myNodeNote.ChildNodes
            
                If myChild.nodeName = "rest" Then Cells(iRow, 3).Value = "Rest"
                                
                If myChild.nodeName = "pitch" Then
                    For Each myChildPitchChilds In myChild.ChildNodes
                        If myChildPitchChilds.nodeName = "step" Then Cells(iRow, 4).Value = myChildPitchChilds.Text
                        If myChildPitchChilds.nodeName = "alter" Then Cells(iRow, 5).Value = myChildPitchChilds.Text
                        If myChildPitchChilds.nodeName = "octave" Then Cells(iRow, 6).Value = myChildPitchChilds.Text
                    Next myChildPitchChilds
                End If
                If myChild.nodeName = "notations" Then
                    For Each myChildPitchChilds In myChild.ChildNodes
                        If myChildPitchChilds.nodeName = "tied" Then Cells(iRow, 12).Value = myChildPitchChilds.getAttribute("type")
                    Next myChildPitchChilds
                End If
                
                If myChild.nodeName = "duration" Then Cells(iRow, 7).Value = myChild.Text
                If myChild.nodeName = "tie" Then Cells(iRow, 8).Value = myChild.getAttribute("type")
                If myChild.nodeName = "voice" Then Cells(iRow, 9).Value = myChild.Text
                If myChild.nodeName = "type" Then Cells(iRow, 10).Value = myChild.Text
                If myChild.nodeName = "staff" Then Cells(iRow, 11).Value = myChild.Text
            
            Next myChild
