Maybe I’m violating some kind of a rule here: This is a tune I have never played in a session. I just kind of like it. It’s from a CD called Celtic Christmas, one of those Windham Hill things produced by Micheal O’Domhnaill.
I suspect this tune comes off as a dull arpeggio etude if played on fiddle or flute. But as recorded on harp by Laoise Kelly, backed by Steve Cooney, it’s quite nice.
It works OK on solo guitar, too.
Cul A Dun
There’s supposed to be accent marks over each vowel. Does anyone know what the title means?
Cul a dun
Try it in DADGAD, with a capo at the 5th fret:
(I have no idea if this tab will translate on these pages, or if the line breaks will make it unreadable. If you would like a copy, email me.)
Hey Paul - Dun is fort, and cul means back or rear, so maybe the Back of the Fort? But my opinion is wrong and stupid. 🙂
Then why are you offering it, you stupid, stupid man?
Maybe “behind the fort?” Doesn’t sound like it belongs on a Christmas compilation, does it?
Oh, and I forgot to state the obvious: This tune was written by Steve Cooney.
Will, you realize I’m kidding, right?
Lol, yeah Paul, I’m not *that* stupid. 🙂
So is “Behind the Fort” analogous to, say, “Deep in the Hold,” or “In the Aft Cabin,” or “Up Against the Futtock”? ;o)
But I’m glad you worried about it, Paul. *smirk*
Heh, I’m glad he worried about it for two whole nights, no doubt losing sleep and fearing for his very membership at the yella site. 🙂 Of course, now I can milk this for every drop of contrition. *evil grin*
Hello? Is this the same Paul we’re talking about here? hehehe
Oh, I’m just giving him a hard time. In return. 🙂
He’s never had to deal with that, I’m sure, she said, dryly.
What’s that Zina, you’re a tad dry are you? A bit dehydrated after the “grand” weekend, is that it? Or are you just implying that I sometimes give people a hard time? Or have you just been reading too much Victorian fiction lately? he inquired with unbridled restraint.
“unbridled restraint”! hehehe…nice one…
I was going to make a dirty joke, but remembered that this was a family site in time. I’m sure you can figure out what it was anyway, Harmon.
I’ll just let my imagination run wild…. ;o)
Should I be concerned that all the Victorian-style flirting is taking place on MY posting? I mean, I don’t want to be named as an accessory.
I hereby name you…Handbag. Or maybe, Party Hat.
I never flirt with Will. Rose is too good with that pulaski. ;)
“Accessory”?!?! Hey, you’re the one posting tunes with suggestive, lurid titles….
Lol at Party Hat. But I think Paul is more of a Nipple Ring kind of guy. Or Tongue Stud. Yeah, that’s it.
Oooo, Tongue Stud. That’s a good one.
If you ever met me, you’d find I’m every kind of stud imagineable.
Yeah, well, you’ve no idea about *my* imagination… *smirk*
No, I can’t imagine…
We should let your already-wild imagination run wild with my fictional studly self-image. Imagine the fun they’d have, whilst we sit home and behave ourselves.
I always behave myself. Usually rather badly, but it’s still all behaving, right?
