Tom Ginleys Hornpipe

This was recorded by Sean Maguire in 1971 on an album called `the best of `,although it was mostly new material.He probably learned it from Belfast flute player Tom Ginley.

Variation

Nice tune. Here is a slight variation with some B naturals thrown in. Sounds a little better to my ear.

I meant to put B naturals where you suggested but didn’t know what the symbol was in ABC notation. I play the tune almost the same way you wrote it out. Thanks for the correction.
