2nd part= very good, so good you forget it borders on cliché.
1st part=Often, I hate these mMajor distractions from the minor or mixolydian parts, they sound overbearingly happy and trite in comparison..

Re: Old Cuffe Street

You’re right, they’re just reversed. I like it this way better though. Anyway maybe I’ll just go and add the setting there and delete this.

Re: Old Cuffe Street

Whoops, wrong tune.

Old Cuffe Street, X:2

This second setting is from a recording by Frank Cassidy and John Doherty, which I posted here as a separate tune not realizing the parts were simply reversed.
