GUEST,Peter Laban Tune versions: Tell her I am/Sliabh Luachra (20) RE: Tune versions: Tell her I am/Sliabh Luachra 04 Jul 18


Not sure why the thread title was amended (Joe?), this discussion is not about the Sliabh Luachra variant but hte one that came with this comment (on thesession.org):

'Maybe itís because I learnít it from OíNeillís but I much prefer the 2 part version notated there - it was also recorded by the Northern trad group (fogotten their name but Pat McCabe played piano box with them) back in the early eighties as a two part jig and sounded brilliant. The setting is as follows:-

d|edB GAB|DED GAB|DED cBA|BGE E2d|
edB GAB|DED GAB|AGE cBA|BGG G2 :||
d|Bdd def|gfe dBG|A2A AGA|BGE E2d|Bdd def|gfe dBG|AGE cBA|BGG G2 :||

It also sounds great played slow with emphasis on the E minor bit at the end of the fourth bar!'
