From Brendan Mulvihill & Donna Long
transcribed from the Morning Dew where it appears after Shandon Bells/Boys of the Town/Rakes of Clonmel for a nice Am->Amaj transition to end the set.
Some of Brendan’s variations
4th bar is played with a roll ~c3 BAF or a bowed triplet (3ccb c BAF
2nd time through the pick-up and first bar is played F| E3 E2 B (double-stopping E and open A string)
last time the 2nd part is
fef fef|fef fef|fef fef|fef fef|ece ece|ece ece|
fef f2g|agf ecb|AFE A2F|EC,A,
slowing down over the final notes.
Slainte - I agree - also has a ring of ‘Out on the Ocean’ to it
The following version, in G, with a different ending to the A-part a different B-part altogether, was posted here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpqRz5Q5ZBE
by Mike and Renee Batten. They call it ‘Donnelly’s’.
