Love the second part especially. Will be be playing this in London sessions very soon!

What do you play it with usually?

Great reel! Looks kind of like it would go well with the Morning Dew and maybe Pidgeon on the Gate. I’ll be taking this to the group sesh this week. Nice work 🙂

The Dark…

Sometimes I play it followed by "The Connaught Heifers" .

Nice and Dark and bouncy

Terrific tune Gian … congratulations. A question for you accompanist players. It is in E dorian, has anyone come up with chord changes? I’ve come up with Em, G, A (C#dim) and D but there seems to be a few other possiblities.

Any suggestions?
