A slide by Donal Lunny (from his CD of the same name) with some interesting rhythmic effects at the ends of the B and C parts due to the four-note ascending and descending patterns. Note that there are no F#s in the B and C parts so a D modal accompaniment works better than D major.
The tempo is about 152 bpm. Donal Lunny follows this with the slide version of Nora Criona (pretty much as posted on this site, except for the A and B part endings: A2f fef ABd cBA.
That tempo of 152 falls into the gray area where I can’t tell which notes you’re beating. Is this a moderate tempo, or really really fast?
justjim, each bar has four beats, each worth a dotted crochet (or dotted quarter note). So 152 beats per minute is certainly faster than the midi plays the tune here. But I would imagine it’s about the right tempo for a slide (but would be too fast for a jig).
If you want to hear it at 152 bpm, copy and paste the abc file into concertina.net, inserting Q: 3/8=152 above the K field.
