Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish Style: Other Key: G Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD) Difficulty: Expert
Posted by Tom Hanway, updated: 1/17/2018
Notes: The oldest Irish versions of this tune are in G Dorian (two parts), with even older Scottish versions under different names. Many two-part versions are in G Mixolydian and are very close to 'Paddy on the Turnpike'. This version is fairly contemporary, similar to Eileen Ivers', John Carty's and Matt Cranitch's fiddle versions, all of which have three parts. This version has a little more "D-ness" to it thanks to Eileen's version. (I would not call this 'Paddy on the Turnpike', which only has two parts. I have other three-part Celtic fingerstyle versions of this tune with more "F-ness" to them.)
