I looovvveee this tune. Brian Finnegan is an awesome composor. The way that Flook play it on Rubai is spine tingling. Thanks for posting it.

I think you’ll find that they actually play the tune in F#m on the album.

True but . .

The tune does come out on the recording in F#m, but that’s because Finnegan is playing a low A whistle. When you use B minor "fingers" on an A whistle you get F#m.

Poon Hill, X:3

the version from Flook, play it on a low A whistle as if you are playing a D whistle.
