1st and 2nd parts remind me respectively of The Foxhunters (in 9/8) and The Kesh (6/8)
(…both better tunes I reckn)
The Foxhunters is in Gmajor though:
I prefer both other tunes but this playful slide is just what you need when you need a playful slide! 🙂
From the playing of Éamonn O’Riordan and Tony O’Connell.
