Sean Coghlan’s Slide

I couldn’t find it on ‘advanced search’ but it’s such a well known tune that I’m sure it’s here already, but perhaps in a different key?

It’s in Amaj

It’s on Jerry O’Sullivan’s first solo recording, The Invasion. If you do a search on that recording on this site, you’ll find 2 references to Christy Barry’s on the same track. I love how this data base works!

Duplication! ~ AND ~ It’s in A Major

“Seán Coughlin’s No. 2” / “John Donoghue’s”~ slide

Wrongly ~ as a jig and mistakenly attributed by titles as another “Sean Ryan’s”
