Hula Hoop

Another tune I learned in a workshop with Kevin Crawford. He plays Ray’s Revenge (Jig) into the Hula Hoop (reel). This tune (although it’s written out in D major) is designed to be played on the Bb whistle. I suppose you could really play them on whatever whistle you feel sounds good to your ear, but if you want to play along with recordings – Bb Generation whistles aren’t too pricey, and they have a lovely sound…

To my ear, the tune resolves on F#, so that might make it more of an F# Phrygian tune… but that wasn’t an option here, so I went for Dmaj. The important thing is the two sharps in the key signature anyway, right?

One more disclaimer on this first transcription – the B part could really be played as a repeat after the first time through. The extended B part is a transcription of the variation that Kevin Crawford plays after the first time through the tune. I figured I’d write it out for anyone interested.

Here’s a more detailed transcription, complete with source info:
