Actually in Bb

This tune is in Bb not Gminor but since there is no option to submit Bb tunes on this list I have to list it as G minor.

There are quite a few tunes written in Bb originally, Fahey also wrote a Bb Hornpipe which is quite well known.

You can hear the man himself playing this great tune by clicking on this link

It sounds like he’s playing it in A on the link but that’s only cos his fiddle is tuned down a half step, so he really is playing this in Bb I promise!!!

Paddy Fahey’s, X:2

This is from The Kane Sister’s album, "Side by Side". A bit of a different take.
