"Artie McShane" - Aidan Crossey

Saw this amongst the tune requests. Don’t have it on recording anywhere, but picked it up a few years ago while looking around for tunes online. From looking through this site and the tunes here, it looks like Aidan was one of the earlier contributors.

Hope you enjoy!

Great tune…

but, I’d have to say the Key is D, not G. You could call it D Mix or D Major (depending upon how you judge all those C sharps).

Thanks for posting this!

Your welcome.

Guess it was the hour- the first part is in Gmaj and alternates between C# and Cnat, where as the second part is in Dmaj. I’ve left it to say the key as Gmaj, but changed the ABC’s. Probably too late to change the sheet, but that would have cleared out all those sharps in the second part!

Correction - that should be Dmix, not Gmaj.
