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.
And yes ,I do thing I have the part’s the wrong way around. But, this
Info and abc are really Most Helpful ’ I Really Do Thank You For This ’
After many year’s of searching.
Best, f4
