another gan aimn

Any ideas on the following?

The first part is interesting and may well be in another key sometimes. The second part is like many others, almost kind of "generic-Irish-tune-in-Aminor".

A3 B A2 GE | G2 AB cdef | geae gedg | eaag a3 b |
c’2 ac’ bagb | agef g3 a | gedB c2 ef | gedB cABG :|
ea a2 aged | Bdef g3 e | a3 b agef | gedg eA A2 |
ea a2 aged | Bdef g3 a | bgab gede | gedB BA A2 :|

Here’s the first part in Eminor:

E3 F E2 DB, | D2 EF GABc | dBeB dBAd | Beed e3 f |
g2 eg fedf | edBc d3 e | dBAF G2 Bc | dBAF GEFD :|

I hear phrases from Abbey Reel and Splendid Isolation in the A-part, and John Naughton’s in the B-part. Where did you hear this one?

Re: another gan aimn

It’s on Michael Dwyer’s CD Na Daoine atá Imithe. The track listing is simply ‘Michael Dwyer’s Favourite’, track 5 but it’s really two tunes, the first one being his own composition and this one, the second, not written by him.

Because it’s got all sorts of familiar bits in that tune, at first I assumed it was written by Michael - but his brother John says not and I trust him to know. But we all make mistakes of course. 8))
