A Slip Of A Thing

Written by Jim Murray and transcribed from Tara Breen and Padriag Rynne’s album “Nasc.”

A Slip Of A Thing, X:2

Here’s a close transcription of Tara Breen’s playing in the above clip. I’d say it’s in F (not Dm as originally posted here).

And Padraig Rynne does a tasty little variation in 2nd bar of the last line:

A Slip Of A Thing, X:4

Even more session friendly for some instruments, this setting in G stays mostly faithful to Tara Breen’s interpretation and sits very well on fiddle. I like it in F on fiddle for the sweetness of the key, but this tune’s lovely in any key.
