Tunes from link?

Re: Tunes from link?

Thanks for the link upmine3. I’ve found it here on The Session:

I just listened to the midi for the Ballysdesmond #2 and that’s definitely it, not that I would mistrust someone with the user name of Reverend!

Anybody know the third?

Re: Tunes from link? >>Ballydesmond #2

Ah, just remembered where I know the second one, the Ballydesmond #2 from, The Chieftain’s ‘Water from the Well’, though the comments for that recording have it as #1?!

Re: Tunes from link?

Yeah, I think they might all be officially named "The Ballydesmond", and people try to put numbers to them to help keep them apart…

Re: Tunes from link? >>Polca Gan Ainm

Here’s a stripped-down ABC version of what they are playing for the third polka in this set:

T:Polca Gan Ainm
d2 ed | cA A2 | d2 ef | g2 g2 |
d2 ed | cA A2 | eg fe | d2 d2 :|
f2 fd | g2 gd | f2 fd | gf ed |
f2 fd | g2 gd | (3efg fe | d2 d2 :|

I couldn’t find anything with the ABC search, though I haven’t written with any swing. Here’s the only thing close that I’ve been able to find here on the site:

It’s another of those lumped as ‘The Ballydesmond’ and I’m thinking the ‘Gan Ainm’ perhaps could be a version of this tune?

Thanks again for the first two.
