Thirty comments

This is the second tune played on track 5 (Bealach an Doirin — The Path through the Wood) of Boil the Breakfast Early (The Chieftains 9). It was played in D minor on that album, but I’ve given the ABC notation in E minor, the key in which I have heard it played most often.

Seamus Creagh’s Slide

Sorry guys, another one I can’t find the right name for, & once again, such a common slide that’s it’s probably in here in a different key? - like my last one!

Thanks Beard. Interesting to note that some of my bars are exactly the same as those of Teehan’s, but mine are separated out. Guess I’ll have to start squashing mine up. Och well, you live & learn. Cheers.

Time to press the big red DELETE button again I reckon - Jeremy - Thanks.

"Teahan’s Favourite" / "Seamus Creagh’s" ~ Ptarmigan transcript

Finger on the button, but before things go ‘poof’, and knowing that feeling, here’s Ptarmigan’s bit of work on this tune, transcribed from where?, well, he didn’t say, so hopefully he will add something to this later?

A loverly shlide from Ceol as Sliabh Luachra.

Julia and Bill Clifford play this one, and when I saw it warn’t up yet I wouldn’t to let the travesty stand. Great tune, set up with Kishkeam Lasses - but be aware that passed through my teacher, we’re not so sure on the names, so for fullness’ sake, we’re calling her one and the other -_-

Enjoy! I’ll put up the other laters-on.

& the B-part is just a variant of the last part of Hehir’s, honest! ~ cross my heart!!!

There are a few 32 bar tunes floating about that have broken off of that multi-part, either that or Hehir’s was an expansion on one or the other of them? I’ve been in a discussion of this before and can’t remember the outcome. The earliest member of the family I had, personally, was a 32 bar tune collected in the 70’s… Parts A & B of Hehir’s being one, A & D, like this one, being another…

Well…

Wouldn’t I be a lump and a half >_>

I’m sure poor Julia would be very much interested to hear her old shlide inside another…

—DtM

Nah, you ain’t no lump… Like I said, also being a fan of the Murphys and Cliffords, the first ways I knew these airs was as 32 measures… I wouldn’t lay claim to knowing, but my suspicion is that the 32 measure came before 64, that being the classic form for the tunes and dances that accompany each other. It wuold be interesting to know those histories better… I have to admit, I like them all…

Oh, wow.

So I just completely amended the ABC notation to show the right slide >_< Somehow, that "the" modifier missed me the fact that Kishkeam Lasses is most certainly up already, and it is what I -had- transcribed above. What’s there now is the actual Knocknagree Slide.

Of course, now her MIDI and sheet music’s all messed up. Poo.

"Rural Felicity" / "Kerry" ~ just two parts ~ alas is no more ~ "POOF!"

See ‘comments’ for "Kathleen Hehir’s" for the ABCs and notes from that submission…

Knocknagree…

Recorded by Billy & Julia Clifford as the "Knocknagree", I seem to remember.

Jacke Daly and Seamus Creagh, sigh! Lovely shtuff! 😎

Murphy’s

That’s an aweful lot of recordings. But one I query. The Rowsome Tradition by Kevin Rowsome is a great piping cd. But Murphy’s on there is a hornpipe.

Eber Finn ~ it is the loose nature of the database, not all "Teahan’s" on this site are the same tune, but all tunes called "Teahan" can and often do link to something other than what is actually on the recording. It can be confusing and does lessen the value of the database in this respect. Consider "Padraig O’Keeffe’s". Yes, and did I mention ‘frustrating’?

Ignore much of what has been said above - - - 😛

It was for a previously submitted transcription of ABCs that has now been replaced by another. So, from

Kathleen Hehir’s?

Have absolutely nothing to do with the transcription that is now here… 😏

Edor not Ador?

Even though only one sharp is shown, this really has an Edor feel to me (Em and D chords). There is no c# in the piece, or c for that matter, but I would be inclined to write it in two sharps.

Re: Teahan’s Favourite

Ceolachan has kindly found the other iterations of this tune on the database; I rather think these could be merged under the present entry. There is some slight variation but it’s the same tune through and through.

Re: Teahan’s Favourite

Can’t make head nor tail of most of the entries; most are not relevant. This includes the link to the Collection which is to Johnny Leary’s Knocknagree Polka.
