Slow Tune in 6/8

From Michael McGoldrick’s recording Aurora. A lovely slow tune. Not really a jig but definitely in 6/8. The first three parts are just a build up to the fourth, which makes the tune worth playing.

To play along with the recording you’ll need a low F whistle. The notes come out in D minor, though he’s using B minor fingers.

Great tune. 🙂

interesting melody, so far I agree it gets played slowly, almost a lament! Very deep tune anyway. It’s a perfect fit on guitar in CGDGAD capoed 2nd fret.
