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. 🙂

Thanks Sébastien.. You did a great job transposing this tune! It’s indeed fantastic!

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

I honestly think its being played on a low C whistle not low D. (I have some dim recollection of somebody in the know telling me) Which is markedly easier
