Undoubtedly of Irish origin, this tune gets played on both sides of the Atlantic.
Despite the title, it's not the saddest tune I've ever heard.
Played here in D out of standard G tuning, which often works well on these modal tunes.

I’ve been following your videos for a while now and your musical tastes sure are varied ( much like my own ). St Pats is just a few weeks away now. Like your other posts here again you show there is not much you can’t play and play well. Thanks for another great tune!

Thanks Jerry! I started out playing bluegrass but I realized over time that I liked just about everything. Not all of it sounds good on banjo but I usually tried anyway.

This flowing, melodic style shines a mellifluous light on an Irish tune that might otherwise be played in more jerky way. Big L's elegant, aerodynamic approach puts one in a peaceful frame of mind.

Thanks Paul, as always. Trying to get it smooth was the challenge, glad it seemed that way.

That's nice Laurence. Finding the groove, that's the trick.

Totally agree.
