Six comments

Not sure of the derivation of this one, but it’s a lot of fun to play and the dancers love it ‘cause it’s so bouncy.

Daily’s reel

second tune on Bryon Sutton’s flat picking guitar blue grass recording.

Daly’s, X:2

Probably a mixture between Dermot Byrne’s version and Beoga’s version as that’s where I know it from. Amazing reel, love the way it flows.

Re: Daly’s

In the US this is a “floating” tune played in a variety of keys under various names. I think fiddlers Kenny Baker and Joe Greene are responsible for spreading it around. Midwest fiddlers Cyril Stinnett and Bob Walters called a version in C Major “Clyde Durst’s Tune”. The change in chord sequence in the second part gives the tune a “lift” which dancers will like!

Daly’s, X:3

Here’s a transcription by Stacy Phillips of Cyril Stinnet’s version of Clyde Durst’s Tune, in C.

Re: Daly’s

X3 is a completely different tune
