Gan Ainm

This is a tune that’s played regularly in a session I go to, and I haven’t been able to find it anywhere; I’ve tried doing an ABC search here and on abcnotation.com, and nothing it comes up with is even close to this. Anybody got any leads?

Re: Gan Ainm

I can hear a few similarities there, but IMO not quite strong enough to call it the same tune. I’ll keep looking! More suggestions welcome.

Re: Gan Ainm

I asked the fellow who plays the tune for where he got it, and he can’t remember. He said he thought it might have originally been a reel, in case that’s a clue for anyone.

Re: Gan Ainm

Maybe ask him/her to give it a name, as a place holder or way to identify for now?
