One Jackie Daly Special, comin’ right up!

This lovely hornpipe comes from a tape a friend made me of Jackie Daly’s "Many’s a Wild Night" album. Since I don’t have the liner notes to the recording, I’m unsure if the tune is traditional, or is one of Jackie’s own compositions. A splendid tune, either way. If someone does know from whence this tune originates, please let me know. Thanks, and enjoy!

it is one of jackie daly’s own composition. i just check on album cover.

As an email might not reach you soon enough ~ adjusted ABCs

Laying these out in 4-bar phrases is the norm, and best fits the music too ~

Adjusted ABCs?

ceolachan, I can’t see any difference?

jay made the changes before the coversion to dots. I’d added tthis here and sent him the same in an email. I didn’t want to change his basic transcription, just get it down to 4 bar phrases from the original, which was, if I remember right, 3 bar phrases…

I’ll come back later and add something different later. 😉

Many Thanks to all

Thanks for the info on that set, ceolachan. Just out of curiosity, has anybody put the 2nd tune on the site (The old Court)?
