the final tune in altan’s set of king of meenasillagh/lamey’s/high fiddle reel.

I haven’t heard the CD of her playing this reel but I wonder if the first high g in the last bar of the third part should be a ‘g natural’
Maybe it’s just my ears need re-adjusting🙂

i believe it is a g-natural.

I believe it is a G sharp. I actually listened to the recording. Shocking way to learn a tune, I know.

lol dow
