I lifted this slightly wistful little tune from Maeve Donnelly’s album… her fiddle positively rings throughout the whole tune (and album for that matter)… the closest I can manage trying to match her ornamentation on the tilde notes is to try to treat them as a long roll, even though they’re 1/8 or 1/4 notes - and that gives a reasonably close approximation of that lovely scratch / stutter. Give her a listen though… it’s utterly worth it
I’ve looked for it
Thanks, Greg, for submitting this tune. I’ve been looking for the dots for a few years now., since the one source I had (fiddler I used to accompany) is no longer available to play it for me.
It was crooked when he played it…
Does anyone know of a crooked version of this tune, or was it just the person playing it for me who made it so?
Learnt this tune off Desi Wilkinson this summer in Miltown. His first part is a bit different A|B2BA BAGE| DGGF G2 Bd| etc. but the second part is more or less the same. I could be mistaken but is the key not E minor rather than G Maj?
