A quick one to learn.

Aber…=…….Aber
teifi…..=……t..ayvy ( as in navy)

Here’s a B part variation to maybe take your fancy?

Part B

Recently found a complete version of Deildy, so have stuck the Part B ‘ABC’ notation onto the end of the ABC file.

Works well on Mandolin too! Anyone have a history of this one?

Re: Deildy Aberteifi

it’s a very common tune that first appears in print in davidson’s musical miracles 1859 with a curious third part to the tune in d. a standard for dancing, but in two parts, i first heard it when i was a pupil in school, played on piano by eirlys phillips - when i was 15 i guess. a favourite of mike james on button accordion, i heard it afresh listening to his playing, later on
