The Devilll For My Hurt

This tune comes from Olllam’s recording called "the olllam".
It seems to be composed by John McSherry.
I think this tune is not very easy to learn because of the strange time signature and the unusual key, but this is a great tune. On their recording, they played it on low D whistle and Uilleann Pipes in D… absolutely torturous… great musicians. 🙂

Very nice, thanks Marcus! 🙂

Since playing this Tune (D minor) with a Low D is a Torture for me, here is a version transposed to E minor
