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.
