Good Ear

This is another original off the Album ‘The Good Ear’
Written by Ormonde Waters who plays the concertina on this album.

Thank you.

Good man, Donough. This deserves to played more. Can’t say I’m keen on the title, but a good tune for all that.

I just checked this out from the link on the Australian tunes thread. But I’m curious to know where the composer got the name. Is Mr. Waters a biologist by trade?
Signal transduction is a phenomenon exhibited by many cells, whereby they receive signals from the environment (maybe in the form of molecules or ions) and respond in some way, possibly by upregulating some genome-encoded protein. Here’s a wee primer:

Come on KML, where yuh been, we’re all signal transducing nowadays. How the hell else do you think we could call this ‘tradition’ without good ol’ STs? πŸ˜‰

True, ceolachan, when you join in and play a tune with another player I guess that’s signal transduction on a macro scale. And possibly even at a neuronal level. Who knows what proteins are being upregulated when you learn a new set of tunes πŸ™‚

(I don’t, that’s for sure!)

Ormonde Waters, that is


Too late Laitch, he won’t be inviting you to his next barbie will he now… How embarrassing…


You can come to ours instead, or we can move the feast to you. The cost of flights from there to here are half what you’d have to pay to get down to Ormonde’s neck of the woods… πŸ˜‰
