This is a(nother) Liz Carroll tune. It’s the 2nd tune on the 1st track of her new CD "Double Play" with John Doyle. This is a slightly simplified version. If you listen to the CD you’ll hear she plays it quite differently each time. It’s a little slippery with all the chromatic passages but very fun to play, although, not up to speed yet.
Really cracking tune, here’s Liz playing it. Starts about 1.35
Woops, here it is……
With Liz Carroll and a terrific youngster named Haley Richardson!
Haley is effectively terrific !!!
Looking for chords! In Gm… doesn’t have to be John Doyle-complicated, just workable. 🙂
Re: Anne Lacey’s
Hi Maggie - to answer your question 10 months later 🙂 … it helps to think of the tune as a G Dorian tune, which means it has the same notes as the key of F Major, and not a standard G minor tune. Chords that work well on this tune are G minor (although I prefer to play a G chord with no B’s in it at all - made up only of G’s and D’s), C major, F major and Bb major. You can really get away with only using G minor and C for just about all of the tune, but if that gets boring you can try swapping out chords or using some of the other options as passing chords on your way to the G or C. Hope that helps!
