Tune requested bt drbodhran
Source : Danu _ "All Things Considered"
This is the transcription of the instrumental part ( a jig ) at the end of the song "unlce rat".
Annother setting of this tune has been posted here as The Yellow Wattle, with the parts reversed and in Dmix:
In can be placed in either the Dorian or the Mixolydian mode, since it is hexatonic - i.e. it does not use the 3rd degree of the scale.
The original mode of the thid tune in the Danu recording is D dorian.
I transopsed it to Edor becouse I play it with the D flute.
ideed the tune is playable with the d flute also in the original key.
I don’t know why i transposed it.
Thanks for submitting this one!
I have been playing this one out at my gigs and have a lot of fun with if….with a little trouble with the second part…thanks again!1
