Key

This is from the album "The Mystery Inch" by David Kosky and Damien O’Kane. I think it is in the key of F# aeolian.

Well, if you haven’t got it …

The Mystery Inch, X:2

A live version from Damien O’Kane on Banjo, John Joe Kelly on Bodhrán and Ed Boyd on Guitar.

Re: The Mystery Inch

The tune is in A

The Mystery Inch, X:3 (Goitse’s tricky version)

The band Goitse plays an interesting variation, at the end of the tune :
Here the Mystery Inch is played after a jig called My former Wife.
The variation is played the 2d time, at 1:47
