Key signature

nice tune in A major

F its in A major the Ds should B natural.
Note absence of g# (hexatonic scale).
These galician muñeiras (? Or whatever they’re called) have often more the feel of slides than jigs proper.

Finally!! Some GHB music!!
WOOP WOOP!!

"These galician muñeiras (? Or whatever they’re called) have often more the feel of slides than jigs proper."
Yes, I completely agree with that.
Muiñeiras, btw.

This is not the same tune that Old Blind Dogs play, which they call "Galician." It is some muineira but don’t know it’s name.

Farewell to Decorum

I think this is the same tune as on track six of Hamish Moore’s "Farewell to Decorum" album. I pair it with Atholl Highlanders - but on Gaita, rather than GHB. The D part is wonderful!
