Jim Coleman’s (hornpipe)
I first heard this "tragicomic" piece on Harry Bradley’s second album, but the transcription here is *mostly* on Seamus Tansey’s flute playing with some bits simplified and some variation omitted. Hope the tune is now more accessible to many people though I failed to include juicy bits of Harry’s playful version.
Jim Coleman was a fiddler and the brother of Michael Coleman. A bit of research shows he also played flute.
Some say that Jim was a fantastic player just as good, if not better, than his brother, Michael.
Many Thank’s !
slainte: A lot cleaner than I am playing it,but this is the tune alright.
