This catchy tune is from the mind of Mike McGoldrick, and is not in Amajor but F#minor. I think McGoldrick really has a nack for making really nice tunes, and there’s something really groovy about the key of F#minor….

I’m not quite sure about the name of this tune, but I believe it might be called "I Think it’s Tuesday", but I first heard it on a video on the KerryWhistles website, and couldn’t quite hear what he was saying.

I transcribed the tune to the best of my ability from this youtube video:

If I got anything wrong, please do correct me…. It’s definitely not the most difficult tune in the world, being all pentatonic stuff and whatnot, but definitely good.

Which video ??

nice.. do you remember which video it was on the kerry site?

It’s one of the ones at the bottom titled "Mike John Jo & Ed 2008", they’re playing at the Hammersmith.

“Aurora”

It features on Mike’s latest album "Aurora", last tune, first track.

Off Mike McGoldrick’s new album "Aurora" - it’s the final tune in the first track. Supposedly composed while bungee jumping in New Zealand. Amazing tune.

I posted this tune awhile back here - under the title "I Think It’s Thursday", which I got from one of Phil Hardy’s videos. I probably got the names mixed up, or Mike’s changed the name since.

OMG THIS TUNE IS SO AWESOME!!!!!

I just got Aurora. Bloodddy Hell… 😀 😀

Actually, the tune written about bungee jumping in New Zealand was the first tune in this set, not this tune. Mike explains it in a concert video of his…
