Paddy Canny’s Toast

This is actually the first of two reels called Paddy Canny’s Toast on Frankie Gavin’s CD Frankie Goes To Town. This one is so challenging that I never got around to learning the second one. They are contemporary compositions by Frankie Gavin and Charlie Lennon in honor of Paddy Canny. This used to be quite popular at our local fiddle session before the bar changed themes. Now that I’m playing quite a bit with hammered dulcimers it’s become pretty much a solo piece for me. It IS possible to play it on hammered dulcimer but it isn’t pleasant.

Whoops. On second listen, they still get me confused as to which one I’m listening to but I can’t figure out why, they’re completely different tunes … what was I thinking? How odd.

Name of the second tune?

It’s challenging all right, but not impossible. It’s one of Charlie’s lovelier tunes. Has his kind of bowing pattern.
I’m learning it along with Farewell to Miltown, from the James Cullinan/P.J. Crotty album.
Anybody know the name of the tune following Toast on the Frankie Goes to town CD?

Am I talking to myself?

On the fiddle it’s a lovely G minor tune. But on the flute it’s a killer in G minor- at least for me, at this point. Maybe in my next lifetime, as Christy Barry.
Played in A minor on the flute it’s gorgeous, with a G# in the second part. Now if I can get a fiddler to play it in that key….

as by today, I can’t quite get my head around this tune, so I tried to clarify it, no offense intended;

this needs to be ‘smoothed’ up or ‘righted up’ through actual playing though…
