The Wooden Shutters

Here’s a slip jig I wrote in the spring of 2011. The FSU Irish Ensemble performed it at the Rainbow Concert of World Music in March, with guest artist James Kelly. It switches modes between the parts; the B part is in E dorian, and there are good opportunities for creative harmonization in the C part - try using an Am or CM chord instead of the more obvious Em.

Fyi

Can I submit my own compositions?
Well… The Session isn’t really intended for that. If you do post one of your own compositions, then you must do your "penance", so to speak, by balancing each original composition with about five trad tunes.

From your band’s Facebook page,

"…because it’s not Irish traditional music until it’s on thesession.org!" along with a link to this tune.

That’s not really true…

For a start, it’s definitely not true if you post it yourself!

But man, what cheek.

On the other hand…

Perhaps you guru’s would like to lay off a bit on Mr. Foreman here. He’s not ignorant about ITM as you may wish to believe, nor is the comment about being "traditional until it’s on thesession.org" meant to be anything more than lighthearted. He’s not a boastful or cheeky person, actually, and there are ways of treating people within an online environment that avoid blatant snarkiness. Some of the best players in ITM also happen to be some of the nicest.

And, do you really think that by posting these responses in the manner they were written, that he’s going to come back and post 5 trad tunes? You flame someone, and they go away. "Problem" solved. Not really a way to build community.

For the record, I really rather like the first part of the tune, might need to play it a bit more to get the switches properly though.
