Great slide from Dervish’s Playing With Fire. The liner notes say it’s from the playing of Dennis Doodey.

…which should have been spelt as Denis Doody - see recording links. I’m willing to bet Dan Beimborn would have got the tune off the Dervish album.

Denis Doody, great man and musician…

You’re not getting enough sleep, your bars aren’t exactly adding up…in particular your final one, which would be 13/8?

Thanks ‘c’. You’re right - my sleep patterns have been all to pot lately. I’ve tidied up the abc and changed the pickup for the B-part. On the recording it’s |~a3 gfe ~d3 dfe|| but I prefer |~a3 gfe ~d3 dfe||.

I mean |~a3 gfe ~d3 dge||.

[2 a2 f gfe d3- d2A || ~ back at yuh!

There’s a slightly different version of this tune under the name of keily cotter’s on Tony O’Connell and Andy Morrow’s album.

How about ABC-ing it for us and offering it here?
