You Rogue You Dar’n’t Meddle Me

A great A minor reel that drives really nicely and that deserves some serious meddling.

S:Dance Music of Ireland, 2nd Collection, 1873; No. 72, pg. 32.; O’Neill (Dance Music of Ireland: 1001 Gems), 1986; No. 632, pg. 114, (tune #632).

Cf. additional notes for this tune in its listing at http://www.ibiblio.org/fiddlers/YN_YZ.htm

Change the key to Adorian and you won’t need to mark all those F sharps. But do it quick, before Jeremy creates the sheet music….

Touch me if you dare (in A dorian)

This is the single reel I suggested yesterday as a possible partner to Over the Bridge to Peggy, that I submitted yesterday. I believe it is sufficiently different in many respects from the other "Touch me if you dare" already in the database to merit its own submission.
The source is the Roche collection.

Touch me

More a version of the Old Torn Petticoat this one.

Touch me if you dare (in A dorian)

Yes, there is a family resemblance. It’s possible that Touch Me If You Dare (in its Ador and Gmaj forms ) and the Old Torn Petticoat have a common ancestry.
