Gan Ainm

I got this from the Eliot Grasso album "Standing Room Only". Its the last tune played on track 7. I’ve no idea where it originally came from or who composed it, but I thought it was interesting so I put it together. I know I’m missing the lead in notes, but I’m new to this notation malarkey, so I just wrote the end notes to last for the whole bar. Its supposed to be a low A to lead into the A part and to lead into the B part its supposed to be a high f. I also assume the tune is in Dmaj, but it uses C naturals as well as C sharps.

This is "Gaelic Roots", No. 124, page 139, in Josephine Keegan’s collection, "A Drop in the Ocean".

Re: Gaelic Roots

I believe Máirtín O’Connor composed this one.
