Was Fenora really that Bad? Excuse the joke please.
I learned this off a little tiny book with 50 tunes. Tommy Peoples Played the learning tape. Some of the book was very common. Some of the book was quite unique. I learned quite a few pieces out of that book.
Forgive me for not being specific. I’ll check it out soon enough but in the meantime - I have been hearing a tune on the Lunasa/Lunasa CD that reminds me of this number.
I like the way this tune shifts from A dorian in the 1st part to G major in the 2nd part, without making a big deal out of it.
The A part at least sounds like the tune I call Scatter the Mud, called The Noonday Feast on Lunasa’s first album.
I think the C# was changed to a natural C which makes the
tune sound a bit weird.. :)
