Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish Style: Other Key: Em Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD) Difficulty: Intermediate

Notes: This tune has found its way into Irish traditional music circles, and I play it regularly with James Wickham (button accordion) at the Cryan's session in Carrick on Bannow, Co. Leitrim. James and I have moved it up to Em in a tune medley, followed by 'Ships are Sailing' and then a tune in D, depending, sometimes 'St. Anne's Reel' or 'The Maid Behind the Bar'. It always goes over well with the punters.

Really!? I used to play this on the piano. I was thinking it might be cool to arrange some jazz pieces for the 5-string, to think that people play this in an Irish Session! Wow, I'd love to hear you do it. Either, solo or session form. Do you have a fiddle version of the dots that I could pass on to the folks who do the session in Hamburg?

Also, what is "Carrick on Bannow, Co Leitrim", I can only see a Carrick-on-Shannon in Co Leitrim.
