That was different! Must have been a lot of work to put it together.

Funny how he called it ‘Temperance’ since it’s ‘The Teetotaler’. Not my cup of tee though.

Sorry, I didn’t like it.

Not that funny, Bredna - ‘The Temperance Reel’ is an alternative name for the tune.

Just my preference (and, I’m guessing, one I share with the majority on this site) but I’d rather hear the tune up front, with the fiddle sounding like a fiddle (it is a fiddle, isn’t it?). I have a suspicion there’s some quite nice playing in there somewhere. The guitar’s nice. I’m not into the looped drumbeat, though.

All that said, it’s a different art form and, I admit, not one that I have much understanding of. To some listeners (few of which are likely to be visiting his site), it might be the saving grace of an otherwise boring and repetitive form of music (i.e. Irish trad).

Yes ! The Temperance Reel’ is an alternative name for the tune The Teetotaler..
But what that Reel, is telling you, is to stay away from the ‘’ Demon Drink ‘’ .
Well, it never helped most of the Irish musician’s I know : )

Re: for your consideration

Just FYI, a Teetotaler is a person who practices Temperance, that being abstinence from alcohol.

Re: for your consideration

That’s a pretty neat-sounding effect. I like it, but it sounds a bit like a porno. :P
