Why no comments? Is this another of your compositions? It’s an interesting tune.

I love this tune. It was played by John Egan aroung Dublin - ah, great music. Paul O’Shaughnessy has recorded it. The second part is used for several different tunes.

Ah, I see in another window that’s it’s on the database as John Egan’s with useful comments.


I like it. I don’t quite get it yet but I can see myself liking it and playing it in the future if you see what I mean! I’m very suspicious of tunes that get posted with no comments these days. Thanks for the link to the other one with the comments.

Is this "I buried my wife and danced on her grave" but set to a different key (and with some substantial differences)? I’m trying to find "I buried my wife" in a key that can be played on either flute or whistle. Any help?
