Courthouse Reel

I wrote it by ear from ‘The Leitrim Equation’ recording. Not sure about the key, all corrections welcome=)

Nice tune, sounds really great played on a fiddle in a lazy manner.

Key…

I might be wrong, but I’d say that one is in E minor - or more correctly E dorian.

Oh, I thought I can edit the key. So, if sb can, correct the key, please.

Composed by Shane Meehan

You are the only one who can edit your ABCs including the key.

Ok, sorry i looked for it in a wrong place.

Shane is a v talented young fiddler, just turned 18, from Co Leitrim. He can be heard playing in Cryan’s sessions in Carrick on Shannon. On stage Lunasa mentioned that Shane had over 100 self composed tunes in his notebook when they met him a couple of years ago at the beginning of their Musicians in Residence stint in Co Leitrim.

E dorian is correct. really appreciate the good comments. the tune is written correctly as well.
