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

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)
