Notes: Tom Hanway has this well known tune in his great book but i find it hard to play! So this is my version. the A section is single string style, every bar the same, the B part is my varied with the right hand but no hard stretches

Peter this a great tab. I see that you're not afraid to use the same finger twice in a row in the picking hand, and that's fine. I don't overly concern myself which finger I use anymore and it's good to practice tunes with different fingerings so that they all feel comfortable. I see no harm in picking two notes in a row with either the thumb, index or middle, if it feels comfortable or works for a particular emphasis (or softness). Solid tab, thanks for sharing. I know a concertina in Longford who has issues with this tune, maybe not because of the tune, but probably because of the unliberated title, and she makes great contorted faces if someone starts playing it. Too funny!
