“The Three Sisters Reels #3” ~ “Maggie’s Reel”
Here’s the last of the three reels known as "The Three Sisters". This is full of the familiar, both the A & B parts, but I’ll leave you to making those connections…
This is the sort of thing slainte enjoys. Where are you lad?
The second part reminds me of ‘The Morning Dew’; not sure of the first one.
Yes! ~ “The Morning Dew” - reel - for the B-part of “Maggie’s Reel” ;-)
And the A-part? 8-)

Though the notation for this one is given as a single reel, the structure is that of a double, here’s the A-part for comparison, simplified by reducing the triplets ~
GEBE GEBE | FDAD FDAD | GEBE GEBE | AGFG E2 |
GEBE GEBE | ABAG FD D2 | G2 GF GBdB | AGFG E2 ||
& the A-part of "Maggie’s Reel" simplified similarly ~

The three sisters is a great set. My problem is I have played all in other versions before (Monymusk, Drowsie Maggie, Sean Frank) and so I mix up all these versions and make another one ….
