Bye A While

This is the title track from the fabulous Padraig Rynne album “Bye A While”.

Thanks for putting this on thesession. Have been playing it for a wee while now and it’s a great tune. They occasionally play it in the Glasgow sessions.

Did Padraig Rynne write it?

Bye A While

I don’t know. I bought the album from itunes so I don’t have the details. great tune though.

Do you go up to the high C sharp in the second part? The piper in the recording sounds like he manages it but I usually have a 30% chance of hitting that note (and my reed is f*cked at the moment, so it’s about 10%). So I worked a variation where I can cheat.

Bye a While

Yes, it’s not so bad on the whistle though as long as your not scared of the note, if you know what I mean. Playing an a would work fine in a session though.

Yup… playing an A is what I do.

Bye A While

Thanks slainte. I can’t get enough of his playing. One of my favourite buys of last year.

You’re welcome, “bogman.” I saw Padraig play great music in Galway on my very first visit to Ireland. It was 10 years ago! I couldn’t get enough of his playing either, and head for Galway a few more times within a couple of years just to listen to him. He might be able to recognise me even now.
