Nice simple but v. uncommon tune at least in the sessions I’ve been to. Backers: I’ve posted it in E dorian, but I find it much more exciting to hear it in A mixolydian, so that the tune is set against chords of A and G in the 1st part. In the second part I like to start on a chord of C and then go a bit crazy with a bit of Bm7 and Gmaj7sus2.

A version of the rakes of kildare
Yeah they’re very similar aren’t they? They’re both in O’Neill’s I think.
A variation of "Da Full Rigged Ship" as well?
Paddy O’Brien had the first bar of the B-part as |efe edB| instead of |eBe eBe|.
