Reel No.14

Down as Fahey’s Reel No. 14 in Maria Holohan’s Thesis.

Kind of a strange tune, but I like it a lot. Be great if more people knew this tune.

Are those high ds correct in the 4th bars of lines 1 and 3? Low Ds seem more likely to my ears, but I have nothing to check it against. (Of course, given how strange the tune is, they could very well be right.)

Every note I’ve put there is exactly as transcribed in the book. Fahey sometimes does odd things like this in his tunes, it’s what makes him so unique as a tune composer.
