I don’t really like this song… i’ll have to listen to Nollaig Casey play it…

If you dont like the tune, why on earth post it??

i was waiting for someone to ask that — another member of the session was too lazy to transcribe the tune into ABC himself, so he sent me the PDF because I volunteered to post it here.

Fire on

not the same tune as on fire on by blazin fiddles! but great all the same

It’s a reel

I sent the pdf to Pibroch 14 (what kind of a name is that?)
but thanks for doing my donkey work.

Think of the tune in D (it’s the F sharps/major thirds, even though it has a flattened 7th) and play it as slow as you like.
But remember, it’s a reel. It’s not dotted.
If you play it like a hornpipe it sounds sh*te

stop making fun of me!! i’m feeling inferior.
anyways, i didn’t realise it was a reel, i changed the details

Mark you are my superior … for doing the ABC thing

How about someone posting the second tune on the Coolfin album "Dancing at Allihies"?

‘The Mouseskin Shoe’

Donal Lunny and Coolfin playing two tunes ‘The Mouseskin Shoe’ & ‘Dancing at Allihies’ (both written by Nollaig Casey)
at the Irish Music "meteor" awards. The album "Coolfin" won an award that year. (John McSherry - Uilleann Pipes, Nollaig Casey - Fiddle)
