A beautiful tune…

…from Liz Doherty. Nice dreamy end, particularly highlighted by Ian Carr’s accompaniment on the album, which gives a pleasant minor touch to the atmosphere of the melody.

This is an awesome tune, thanks.

this is brilliant. i love this tune!

The version here seems very different from what Liz plays, especially the lovely pause in the last bar. This is my version:

Re: Feed The Ducks

To my ear , none of the above notate what Liz Doherty is actually playing. Slowing it down on the you tube setting I hear the first 12 notes as . : AEC BEB BCC ACe ????? . Can anyone verify this and notate the remaining as she plays it ???

Re: Feed The Ducks

leprecawn, those are the first twelve notes of Rohan: https://thesession.org/tunes/4197, the first jig of the set.
Feed The Ducks, the third jig, starts at 2:59.
