Fifty-four comments

I’ve included chords here not just for guitarists, but also as an indication for fiddlers as to where some double-stops might sound good. The long E at the start, for instance, could be played together with a B, and the Ds and As could played together with an open D string.

A nice effect with double-stops is to start a bit flat, and slide the shape up. Don’t go overboard with double-stops, though: moderation is the key.

Because this tune sounds nice played slowly, and because there are such long notes in it, there’s plenty of room for rolls and triplets. In fact, I like to use this tune as a testing ground for trying out all different kinds of ornamentation.

Bundle and Go — Bonnie Wee Charlie

I first heard this jig as a comic song sung by the late Fermanagh fiddler Mick Hoy. Unfortunately, I never got the words. I remember part of a verse sung to the high part of the tune. As follies:

The lassies, ye see, they were tickling me
There was one called Molly McCusker
And when trying to kiss me on the kisser, ye see,
Sure, she bit off the half of my whiskers.

Any body ever hear of this and have the words?

Possible names

Sounds like a version of one of the slides: "I Found My Love In The Morning", "My Love In The Morning", or "This Is My Love, Do You Like Her?"

Possible names

I psted the tune as Gan Ainm becouse I don’t know the title.
Indeed it is very similar to "my love in the morning", but it doesn’t seem to me a slide. Do you think I should change "gan ainm"
in "my love in the morning" ?

because because because because because because because

Becouse what? :-)
Isn’t your version just the slide played as a jig?

This tune crops up in various guises around Ireland and Scotland. In Kerry, it’s a slide. Elsewhere it might be a single jig - or even a double jig, if a few notes are added in here and there.

Johnny Doherty had a verion which he called Kiss the Maid Behind the Bier (see ‘Fiddle Music of Donegal’ in the Links section of The Session). In Scotland, I believe they call it ‘Culcrevie’ - or is it ‘Kilcrevie’?

The first slide I ever learned…from a Bothy Band LP. We have just revived it..great tune.

Gmin Version

Michael Tubridy’s "Eagle’s Whistle" album has this tune on it, however he plays with a "C" whistle, so I learned it in Gmin. Very lovely, it has a bit more darker tone to it than the Amin.

I Lost My Love

This is a version of a tune I know as I Lost My Love . Now where did I learn it. I think it was already in the repertoire of a band I used to play with when I joined. I have a feeling that it may appear in that old collection Allan’s Irish Fiddler, but I’m too lazy to look for my copy to check. Anyway, grand tune.

Oh, yes

Oh, yes. I play in in Am, not Em.

“My Love in the Morning” / “This is my Love, do you Like Her?”

Not just similar, with that very little difference it is the same tune, whatever name or identity you give it…
.

“This Is My Love, Do You Like Her?”

~ the same but called a slide…
Key signature: A Dorian
Submitted on June 30th 2003 by nobu.

“Culcrevie” ~

Another name for this in Scotland and even in good ol’ Eire, so I’ve been told…

I lost my love …

This - in it’s "Culcrevie" manifestation - is widely known as "I Iost my love and I care not", from the words of a Thomas Moore (I think) song which it was used for.

Another title and key

As well as the link ceolachan has given above, Jeremy posted an E minor setting under the title of Bundle And Go very early in thesession.org’s history @ http://www.thesession.org/tunes/6.

Sounds like ‘I Love You Not And I Care Not’ from Brian McNamara’s ‘Fort of the Jewels’. Not exactly the same but very very similar.

A Dorian Dow ~ :-P

Yeah :-)

A dorian is a minor mode though.

But yeah :-)

But yeah, oh but, oh but, but yeah, but, yeah ~

Do you get "Little Britain" in Oz, or has the great wizard outlawed such things?

Yeah we do but anyway Destiny who used to be my best friend till she flicked cigarette ash in my hair has it on DVD but don’t borrow it off her because you’ll get the lergy because she totally picks her own scabs and smells of wee.

I don’t think I want to sit near her at anytime either, and if you know which seat she sticks to, let me know so I can avoid it…

Is she another one of your English concertina playing pals? :-P

She probably doesn’t shave and plays "Give me Your Hand" anytime she gets an opening…and does a bad imitation of Joni Mitchell if given the opportunity to sing…

I gotta ask….is the title a promise or a threat?
:-)

Posted .

Heh…

Will, that’s funny, that was the exact same thing I thought…are you bragging or complaining?

And for the record…I got this tune from a friend in Portand who I think learned it from someone in Chico, CA. The only mention I can find of this tune is on a CD by the Pub Scouts, an Irish trad band based in Chico.

I love this tune. I learned it in the key of DMaj (or some strange Irish alternate D scale…I’ll leave it to the theory experts) and it was called Old Commrades.

Is it the same as Con Curtin’s Frolics on one of the Denis Doody CDs?

From Aoife Granville’s “Sraid Eoin Shuffle”

This is a lovely jig. Aoife plays it very strongly, almost as a march. It is from a Dingle Wren tune, which is a variant of I Lost My Love (in Am, posted).
It was transposed from Eb and transcribed by Paul de Grae.

A Dingle Wren tune to my ears.

I learnt this tune back in the 1980s from a fiddler, the late Barry Morgan. The chord settings are Barry’s.

If any of you have a copy of William Winter’s Quantocks Tunebook, you may have noticed a drawing of a fiddler on the front cover. That’s Barry.
