Calendar Boys

A tune from John MCcusker’s Hello, Goodbye recording, one of his own compositions. He plays it after quite a long intro at a really mellow pace with a beautiful rhythm. It’s the first tune I’ve added so I hope I haven’t made too many mistakes. I saw him play it recently with Michael Mcgoldrick and he played it at a much faster pace, still good but very different.

Calendar Boys, X:2

Thanks to Jontro for putting this up – a really fantastic tune. I’ve had a go at bringing the melody closer to how John McCusker plays it on the ‘Hello Goodbye’ album and put in a few chords for good measure.

Re: Calendar Boys

Splendid tune. But key signature for X:2 in G should be one sharp.

Thanks Bazza – a silly error which I have now amended.
