Richard Mellish Waltz Dilemma (28) RE: Waltz Dilemma 14 Jan 19


Sorry for te typo "The Sound Wind" in my previous post.

Also sorry for being slow on the uptake about the change to E major. I was thinking the OP meant a change to the key of E major but I now realise that (as in Da Slockit Light) it's just an E major chord, implying a momentary modulation into A. Quite a few tunes do that (or the equivalent accidental C sharp from the key of G, etc).

Both the Carolan tunes mentioned, Planxty Irwin and Fanny Power, can be played as waltzes but I'm sure they weren't written as waltzes, as (AFAIK) the waltz wasn't invented until a century after Carolan's time.
