The Gwanwitcha

This great tune, in C#m is by Colin Grant. Each part is played four times, with the third part being swung.
The A part has two identical lines played over alternating C#m and F#sus2 chords. Tempo is about 110 bpm (that’s half notes/minims).
Check out the Sprag Session version on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDwzdo-Mv78 .

X: 2 is the tune transposed to the slightly more friendly key of Bm.

And, needless to say, it’s not Irish.
