The Swaggering Rake

I was looking for the name of a tune we usualy play at my local session and I found this one which is very relative. It doesn’t seem to be in the session database but in CREA #4. So I decided to submit both tunes.

Two settings or two different tunes?

I submitted both as two versions of the same tune. Maybe I’m wrong.

Life is full of surprises. This is essentially an E Dorian version of Hardiman The Fiddler (normally D Mixolydian)

The 2nd setting here is almost identical in contour to Hardiman The Fiddler. The 1st setting although differing significantly in bar 2, would work just as well in the Mixolydian mode.
