Seamus Begley’s No. 3

Another tune I got from John Carty whose source was Seamus Begley. It’s a typical Sliabh Luachra slide with no title so far. Not the most ideal tune for the banjo but would be nice on accordion and fiddle.

😏

I think you’ve got something seriously wrong with this transcription Paddy, as there’s nothing ‘typical’ about it or ‘Sliabh Luachra’ about it as it currently stands… I’m curious, but it’s not working as is… Do you know of a recorded take for this that it can be checked against?

Re-check!

Paahto,

I’d agree here, the first bar does seem to be a bit weird! The rest is grand…

Peadar O Riada composition

Think this is a version of Peadar O Riada’s - Slide do Chaoimhin. Its the 2nd tune on a track called Slide Dubh on one of the Triur albums

Seamus Begley’s, X:2

I happened upon this in a random search of the site and liked the general feel of the tune, but the first two bars were missing some beats. So this setting just stretches out the penultimate note of those bars to fit a 12/8 slide rhythm in a way that sounded slide-like.

Re: Seamus Begley’s

Dang! 2nd bar of 2nd part should be ‘DFA’.

Now corrected - the ‘edit’ function wasn’t working for me yesterday.
