The Mason’s Men
This simple little single reel (played ABAB) was written by box player John Williams. I learned it from Solas’ self titled cd on the Shanachie label. My "as played" version strays a bit from what Solas plays and is one way I might play the tune on fiddle. You can also do some nice drones on long double stops with the [fB] or [FB] combinations.
I like the shift from D maj to B min, which also comes in handy mid flight in a set when you’re trying to think of an interesting key change…going into Julia Delaney in Dm is fun.
