Trim The Velvet

Tune #142 from the Goodman Manuscripts. This was recorded on "Dublin Made Me" by Liam O’Connor and Sean McKeon.

Helvic Head….

Looks like 2 parts of "Helvic Head" to me. That "f#" in the 2nd last bar sounds wrong to me - not your transcription, "KJM" - I see that that’s what’s in the book, but I can’t but help wonder if it’s a typo.

The A and B parts are similar to the 2nd and 5th parts of Helvic Head respectively, especially the B part. The A part less so.

Interesting that you mentioned the f#, it sounds like a nice "hook" to me, especially when you do the whooping off-the-knee e to f# transition on the pipes.
