Cahal’s

This is what I hear Solas playing… The tune was composed by Mick McAuley. On the B-part, he takes it up an octave.

Re: Cahal’s

…sometimes I play the B-part entirely in third position on fiddle; depending on my energy levels. But ending it on an open E string, the second time through, makes an easy transition to the repeat A-part.
