Lucky Lucky Day
This tune was written by Donal Lunny. It appears
on his "Coolfin" recording. Halfway through the
arrangement the meter shifts into reeltime, although
in order to make it work out there an extra beat
every two measures. It sounds like a completely
different tune. I’ll post a version of it soon.
As a reel
Here’s the reeltime version. The notes are exactly the same as before; it’s just
that the emphasis is put in different places (and it swings like a reel). I’ve
grouped the notes in 4’s and 3’s to show where the beats come. the two main
patterns are: 1234-1234-1234-12-12-12 and 1234-1234-1234-123-123. The first part
sounds a little contrived but the second two part are wonderful. The rhythm
twists and turns. Good luck!
