Inion Ni Scannlain

This tune appears on Lunasa’s 2001 recording, Merry Sisters of Fate, and is written by Donogh Hennessy, who plays guitar and whistles with that band. It is, however, written in Eb major, not G major as is reported here.

Great tune!

Version of Donogh Hennessy’s book “L

This is the version I’ve transcribed from the book, it sounds a bit different:

Here’s an even closer transcription of what Kevin Crawford is actually playing on the first pass through the tune, transposed up to G here to work on a D flute.

I’ve indicated cuts by putting the note above in {brackets}.

Guitar chords for Lunasa’s Inion Ni Scannlian

Hi, I was wondering if anybody has the guitar chords for Lunasa’s "Inion Ni Scannlain" (http://www.thesession.org/tunes/540/) or perhaps knows where to find them. What a lovely tune. Oh - or alternatively some guitar-guru should feel more than welcome to submit his/her own chords. Thanks - highly appreciated.

Best wishes,
Brian, Denmark

Re: Guitar chords for Lunasa’s Inion Ni Scannlian

It’s in Eb, so maybe put capo on first fret and using D shapes
try to work out something for yourself.
Why not first start at home playing one bass note per bar to
pick out what you think might fit - and using that and the fact
that the D major can be harmonised with these chords - D,
Em, F#m, G, A, Bm, C#Dim select what chords sound right
(keep in mind that your ear should overrule theory ).

BegF is right. But if you have no joy I’ll give you a cheat sheet along the lines of what the man himself (Donogh Hennessy does).

Re: Guitar chords for Lunasa’s Inion Ni Scannlian

Hi guys - I don’t play guitar myself (I play the flute) - but I was hoping to get a friend of mine (who plays guitar) to try to play it with me. And it would help a lot if he had the chords to start off with…

Guitar chords for Lunasa’s Inion Ni Scannlian

Was working them out today so post my take on them in case of interest. If you hear it different feel free to chime in:

Capo at 1st fret

D Asus4 D/B D Asus4 D
G Bm Em A
D Asus4 D/B D Asus4 D
G Bm Em A

Em G D D/A D
Em G Bm Bm/A Bm
G Bm Em A
Em G A

Bridge (not transcribed in ABC)
Bm A Bm A G D/F# Em A x3

If someone wrote this for me, I’d marry them. Period.

Farewell to Uist

Cannot help but put the link to "Farewell to Uist" They are worth comparing. I think they have a lot in common although clearly different in many ways. I think they are both terrific tunes.

yep, hetty, I also find it redolent of The Dusty Miller (at least in a lose impressionistic way and in this version; http://www.thesession.org/tunes/4323 ). It perhaps is closer still to other modern walzurka(?) types, like Eoin Dillon’s Paddy’s Perambulation for instance.
