Paddy Goes to Hell

This is what happens when I don’t get enough sleep.

BTW, yes, this is accurate…

Yes he does

Damn! 🙂
What the hell scale is that? No mode i could think off. It’s like a B Aeolian with a flattened 5th.

Go get some sleep, please! 🙂


It’s basically B minor with a flatted 5th - the tritone being symbolic in classical music of the Devil, and also a favorite interval in heavy metal or “Devil Rock” if you will. I just felt like writing something really weird. I figured if Paddy was going to Hell, it would have to be a slide, wouldn’t it? Don’t worry, I got 8 hours last night! >🙂



Actually it sounds somewhat cute/angelic if you un-flatten those F#s.

Re: Redemption

Heh. Sorta sounds like a kitten sneaking up on a defenseless dust-bunny.

All f and c#

nice tune in Russian lullaby style?

I meant: it sounds a bit ‘Russian’ when all f’s and c’s are sharp.

But as it is it sounds very good and rather charming; more like Paddy ascending to heaven (as an angel striking the harp like in a Popeye cartoon!) rather than a picture of damnation.

Re: Paddy Goes To Hell

This sounds surprisingly really good in the key of Bmaj. By that I mean change the key to Bmaj in the ABC software. Don’t transpose it.
