Re: Old’s King

Surely this is the Old King’s reel.

Re: Old’s King

Worth flagging up previous discussion on this and the other King’s Reel, especially the posts from slainte (13 years ago).

Also, incidentally, since they have been discussed elsewhere, the key, or mode, changes between first and second half in both tunes: a bit of a surprise on first playing! Probably easier just to change key signature than pepper the written music with accidentals. (But I don’t do ABC!)
