Just read your profile. Welcome to the Session Paddy. ‘Grand old age of 28 ’ hey? That made me almost choke on my morning coffee!

Love the tune myself and can’t find it so I just transcribed it to post it here, but Earl Cameron was faster. But I think Bar 4 in the B-Part goes |g/d/B/g/ f/d/c/A/| .

Re: Name of this Tune

Hi Paddy,
The tune is called Planxty Fiddlesticks and was composed by Dinny McLaughlin, the man playing in the video with Liz Doherty.

DetlefS did you want to do the honours or shall I?

Re: Name of this Tune

Earl, you where the first to transcribe the tune, so I think, you have the honour to put it into the database.

Re: Name of this Tune

Thanks for all the effort folks, that’s brilliant! All I have to do now is learn it I suppose!

Thanks for the great welcome to the forum.
