This is the third tune off the sixth track of Paddy Keenan’s Na Keen Affair album. It definately goes well with the others in the set and the shift of key sounds interesting.

Bmin?

Are you sure?

Oh - So Gian Marco, you’re saying it’s in A dor on the cd? I don’t have that cd, so I haven’t heard the tune. I like your transcription of it though.

Yes Will, on that CD it’s in Ador.

Thanks for that. Any idea who composed it?

Written by Geoff painting? Wow, how did he hold the paint brush and play at the same time?

(high-hat & snare drum) *cha-ta tum!* I’ll be here all week.

Panting.

The final/fourth polka from the Running The Goat set, as from the playing of The STEP Fiddlers.
