Powers of Punch

This is an amazing tune… but I’m not keen on the Long Ridge Ceili Band ‘s version.

The main reason I enjoy this tune is the final part, played as per the version in O’Neill’s 1001, which is:

| BAG AFD | GDC B,A,G,| G,GF GDB, | A,AA A2a |
bgb afa | gfe dBG | EcB AGA | BGG G2z :|

The Ceili Band have ruined it (in my opinion) by playing an arpeggio instead of the scale down to low G.
