Casu

This version came from the woodenflute mailing list, I believe. Quite a fun jig. I’ve been intruiged with it ever since a night when, slightly drunk in the front row of a Lunasa concert, we decided that it must be a reel… which of course is completely ridiculous. Sean made a point of stating at the end that they had played a JIG set, so thanks man. :) I think that was also the night we vowed to learn it on kazoos…

Munera Ju Casu

I learnt this tune from Lisardo, a fiddle player from the band Felpeyu (from Asturies, Spain) when they toured Australia. It’s actually a Munera, which i believe is like the Asturian version of a jig. I had forgotten all about this tune untill i heard it on the lunasa CD ‘the merrry sisters of fate’. When Lisado taught it to me there was a slightly different accent than is normally played in an irish jig but i’ve completely forgotten how to do it so have now resorted to the way Lunasa play it - which isn’t so bad:)

It can be found in the "IV" cd of LLan de Cubel. Which is a great group from Asturies. Also the first tune is asturian air, taken of the same cd and group. It’s more or less a jig (6/8)

Key

Original key is probably C - the figuring lends itself to asturian bagpipe fingering.

Could this be Dmaj instead of Gmaj?

Second setting-the C in the B part feels like it wants to be sharp? This is also treating the last triplet in the second ending of the A part as the pickup measure for the B part.

Like the tune in either key-thanks for posting!

Hi,

This settings is one of the first tune I learned by hearth after listening to the beautiful Gillian Boucher’s set I found on YouTube

Thanks Gillian you’re a fantastic musician !

Re: Muineira De Casu

Thanks for the tune. If you want to play along with the record though it’s in B flat. Easy enough to capo up one fret on yer banjo or mandolin!

Re: Muineira De Casu

I always feel that muinera are more like slides with the emphasis on the first of each cluster of 12 quavers.
I had a holiday going along the Camino de Santiago one summer and the language and bagpipes changed every 50 miles. Funny thing was that the tunes changed less and we heard muineras all away along the top.

Re: Muineira De Casu

X3 this is not a Galician tune. It’s actually from Asturias, we’re cousins, but not exactly the same :)
