Re: Dublin Porter

It’s amazing how few comments are on this tune! It really is a great one, in an understated kind of way; pity it took me so long to realize it. I like the somewhat hornpipe-like ending of the first part, as well as the "G"-"C"-"D" chord modulation in the first part, and the modulation to Ador for some of the second part. I wonder about the ancestry / relationships of this tune…

Re: The Dublin Porter

Sounds almost Handl or Mozart!

Re: The Dublin Porter

I think the correct way to play this tune is first part twice and second part once. The tune also ends on the first part played twice. I love the power that a band can get in to the first part on the long notes when changing in to it
