Irish dentists

On seeing this new tune this morning, I immediately sent it off by a somewhat circuitous route to a friend of mine who is an elderly, wooden flute-playing, retired practitioner/lecturer dentist.

(He also makes citterns and carves the roses out of dental amalgum, but that’s by-the-bye.)

His considered response, after peering at the tune for a few moments was, "Hmmm. If this is supposed to be Irish… Irish dentists are not gentle."
