Giullan Nam Bo

Just been reading the “Flat Keys” thread and thought I’d submit one of my favourite tunes of that ilk.

This isn’t a jig and gets played as a slow air. I think it should be in E flat as opposed to F dorian but there doesn’t seem to be a facility for Eb here….

“We’ll have none of your flat keys in Irish music! Leave that to The Beatles” 🙂

The tune is also known as “The Cowboy” and was first found in The Simon Fraser Collection. I learned this from an arrangement by Patsy Seddon on a harp course a few years back. It sounds even nicer with the left hand part. It may be possible to find a way add this here too? I’m not sure.

to A,,E,(A, A,3)|B,,F,(B, B,3):|

It seems to be more “midi friendly”
