Twelve comments

"Maggie in the Woods" ~ the polka

Key signature: G Major ~ but both also played in A

I wouldn’t be surprised if I’ve duplicated this and it is already on site. I did a search for it in the keys of G and A and even trying different ways with the ABC’s, but without luck… I was very surprised not to find it on site, but that wouldn’t be a first.

~ also played in A Major ~ |: cB | A3- A2 B c2 f f^ef | ~

More variations:
K: A ~ |: c | A3- A2 B c3 f3 | ~
K: G ~ |: B | G3- G2 A B3 e3 | ~

"Maggie in the Woods"

This one also goes well with a second ending, and since we’re repeating, there are a few other possibilities given in the transcript:

K: G Major
|: cBA |
G2 D G2 A B2 e e^de | d2 B G2 A BcB AGE |
G2 F G2 A B2 g gfe | d2 B A2 F G3 :|
|: GB/c/d |
g2 f e2 d e2 f gfe | d2 B A2 G B2 A A2 d |
1 g2 a gfe e2 f gfe | d2 B cBA G3 :|
2 G3 G2 A B3 gfe | d2 B A2 F G3 :|

Apologies, I messed up the repeat signs, here it is corrected:

K: G Major
|: cBA |
G2 D G2 A B2 e e^de | d2 B G2 A BcB AGE |
G2 F G2 A B2 g gfe | d2 B A2 F G3 :|

One of the first tunes I learned; from the (live) playing of Michael Gorman and Margaret Barry. It’s on their LP/CD Her Mantle So Green. I still play it with Tralee Gaol.

I’m thinking you mean the 2/4 polka set… However, "Tralee Gaol" is easily played in 12/8 as a slide and that would make an equally interesting set…

‘c’ I love this slide setting you have of this. I only really hear this played as a polka, but as a slide it’s great! Can you think of any recordings of the slide version?

Lovely playing in that clip above, here’s the ABC’s for their version……..
