Who knows the real name of this tune?

I (we) call this tune "Tribal Jig", but isn’t the real name.

“tribal jig” real title

It’s not "Dever the Dancer". I like very much this "tribal Jig" and I’d like put it in our next album.
So i need the real title.

Certainly not “Dever the Dancer”

Also related to a slip jig I have submitted under Gan Ainm
https://thesession.org/tunes/3999 which I now know as a version of "Humours of Whiskey"

Up and Down Again?

In some ways it’s similar to a slip jig in O’Neill’s called Up and Down Again. As follies:

The Old Way

This is the old way I learned this tune, as played
by the The Chieftains 2 Album. Track 10.
The Humours of Whiskey / Hardiman the Fiddler
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Chieftains_2
or hear it on my you tube channel..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=283IxIfBesM&list=UU-gqzf_ikbQ8LZe1nz8r92Q&index=1&feature=plcp

The new ways ok But, all they done was put silly note’s
into it lifted up the key to B minor but !
” Totally Lost the Swing of the Tune ”

Matters of perspective

Back then Jim ‘The Chieftains’ were considered the ‘new’ wave and way… :-D

Setting #4

is as played by Catherine McEvoy at Cuisle Cheoil.

A little different chording

Lately, I tend to play it with these chords:
Em Bm Bm/Em Bm F#m/Em Bm G/A A A
D D A / D D G / D D G/A A A
