Interesting how much the first tune resemble Ste. Anne's least to my ears...but with different rhythmic emphasis.

I'm not really into CH for Irish tunes either - but you did a good job (on tunes that I play melodically on 5 string myself). I also tested Marc's idea - played Dennis Murphy's Polka on banjo whilst playing an MP3 of St Anne's Reel - they work quite well together.
