Ryestraw - A great reel from Lunasas "La Nua".
I saw Kevin playing it on his Burk high D yesterday in Venlo.
Great tune! πŸ™‚

Ryestraw

This seems to be their take on an old time tune which is also called Joke on the Puppy. The words to this tune were scatological and I’m told the old timers wouldn’t play this in the presence of the ladies.

You’ll want to…

change the upper case Z s to lower case z s before the ABCs get converted.

Done!
Thx πŸ™‚

Lunasa played it really, really different from your notes on their album "La Nua"…
Like your version too though. πŸ™‚

Ryestraw

My version is taken from the album.
"Ryestraw" is a lot of fun to play, a very good tin whistle tune. πŸ™‚
