Six comments

I saw this on the requests page - a nice slow reel.

If you’re trying to play this the way McGoldrick does on Fused, you’d best transpose this up a minor 3rd to F major (1 flat). Maybe I should submit a transcription of his version?

Go on then…as you play it? ~ or as McGoldrick does…

This is a nice key to play this tune in. Works best on flute, especially on the high notes. For the second ending of the second part, try bending up to the d’ there. This is probably one of my favourite tunes. By the way, the tempo goes well at around 85 bpm… heh I like details 🙂

I am pretty sure McGoldrick plays an F Whistle on the recording.
