A tune that’s very special to me!

This is a very special tune to me as it is perhaps the first one I heard. It’s actually from an arrange CD of a video game soundtrack entitled, "Final Fantasy IV - Celtic Moon".

I know that it’s probably not a traditional tune (although I could be under a different title), but it’s still one heck of an amazing tune. I’ve currently got it completely learned on the Irish Tenor Banjo and am currently relearning it on Irish Bouzouki (which is played the same way, since, even with GDAD tuning, you never use the highest string, so it’s played exactly the same way). I hope to learn it on whistle soon.

Small Change

After listening to the recording carefully a few more times, I noticed that instead of the quarter-note G in the fourth measure, they were playing two eighth-notes: an F followed by a G. I edited the ABC notation to correct the mistake I originally made.

Correcting the Correction

Oops. In the last post, I meant to say F# but instead said F. The ABC notation is correct, but I just messed up when posting that last comment.

Hmm…

I don’t know. I can’t say that I share your enthusiasm for this tune Ian.

Someone changed the ABC notation before the song was submitted.

OK. Someone changed the ABC notation and messed up the way the tune sounds. Some repeats were added that shouldn’t be there. I corrected the ABC notation, but how long does it take for the corrections to be reflected in the visual sheet music and MIDI file?

Hey, don’t stab each other.

It’s called ‘Elizabeth Kelly’s deligh´t’ I believe. And yes, it is very similar

Hey, I’m not stabbing. Just expressing my thoughts. I’m just not that fond of the tune. Yet.

-Max

Don’t know if it’s Elizabeth or Catherine, but the resemblance between the two tunes is not accidental, I think. Maybe, Maire Bhreatnach rewrote the traditional tune.

P.S. Max, you have to emphasise *Yet*.
