The Gypsy

From the playing of Rum Ragged. Composed by Dave Panting.

Made a slight change to their setting. Rum Ragged go into the C Part, and repeat into it, with "AGxD E/F/GAB" (where x = F or E), which I’ve replaced with "AGxD E3B".

Re: The Gypsy

Yeay! Thank you NfldWhistler!
Is this a slow reel or does it get played quickly? I sounds really good with a slow reel like On the Wings of a Skorie…
This is one of those tunes that sounds so beautiful slow that I don’t want to speed it up.

Re: The Gypsy

You’re welcome Emily.

Sounds good played either way, slowly or quickly. The slowest recording is George Morgan’s, at Q:1/4 ~ 110. The quickest is Dave Penny’s recording, at Q:1/4 ~ 255. A few others are at around Q:1/4 ~ 185 - 200.
