The Days That Are Gone

This tune is played by Aoife Granville and may be heard on the NPU archives at:
http://pipers.ie/source/media/?searchTerm=%20Aoife%20Granville&mediaId=26770&pageSize=12&sPage=1
where it follows ‘Jesse James’. Aoife notes that she learned the tune from Charlie Piggott. The title and perhaps the inspiration for the tune comes from the well-known song, ‘Let us sing of the days that are gone, when you and I were young, Maggie’. It is played with lots of cuts and taps and needs to be heard before trying to play it (i.e. the dots and squiggles give even less of an idea of the verve of the tune than usual). A nice little bit of variation that she does occurs on the third time through where she switches the 4th and 12th measures. Thanks for a great set, Dr Granville!
