Triplicated…

Wonder when we’ll get our first quadruplication?

I play this one as I learned it from The Tulla Ceili Band’s album "A Celebration of 50 Years" where they play it with a different order of the parts, the order being the parts that here are called C, A and B.

I reworked my version as it was obviousely not correct. It is also in coincidence with the tube above now.
