This is a great eerie, spooky tune. I learned from a great concertina player named Olive O’ Mahoney, and I haven’t been able to stop playing it ever since! In the second part, where it has "d2 d d c b", you can put a roll there instead of holding the d.

Re: Gan Ainm

Also, it sounds very nice in the key of DMinor!

Olive O’Mahoney’s, X:2

Setting in Dminor.

Given the lack of B’s, could also be notated as Ddorian.

Olive O’Mahoney’s, X:3

Setting in Bminor.
