I felt like some due diligence needed to be rendered to this original composition by ace guitarist Dennis Cahill, seeing as it was the *only* tune that had yet to be transcribed and represented on the page for the first recording *ever* posted on this web site.
Most of the motion in the A part will lay pretty easily for folks who have played their fair share of Emin tunes, but that penultimate bar in the B part unexpectedly emphasizes cadential motion from the bright Cmaj VI to the Bmin dominant — very tasty!
The tune is given a very loose and improvisationally inspired treatment on Cahill’s outing with Martin Hayes on "The Lonesome Touch" ( https://thesession.org/recordings/1 ). I have transcribed it in what could be considered a more immediately accessible setting – with a few of Hayes’s variations thrown in for good measure.
