Emmett’s Revenge

From the playing of Líadan. Composed by John Whelan.

Plenty of alternative notes fit the melody. For instance, "dB AF" works in place of "dA FA" and "dA FD".

I was only talking about this tune at O’R’s session Sunday past….heard it on shuffle on my playlist and had to learn it! I like you screen name…are you in NFLD?

Funny how things work out. Just stumbled onto this one recently as well.

I’m no longer on the island. Visit as often as I can!
