Thread Name: Meaning of 'The Coolin'
Subject: RE: Meaning of 'The Coolin'
Greetings to Escamillo and Masato, since both are so far away from where I live.

The 'Coolin' is in one of the many Books I collected, it is written out in it's entirety, many variations and set for Violin, but I cannot play it on my Harmonica... except I cheat   .. grin.

About Japanese Cultural interests in Ireland, it is fascinating to read that there are Irish Traditional Pipers in Japan and they are very good as well.

Also could not help but notice the house of one Japanese Piper was thatched, perhaps that is the connection since the music sounds so good in Irish thatched cottages.

Escamillo I have many relatives in your part of the world and I am seriously - even at my advanced age - trying to learn eSpanol so I can speak to them, however my teachers here tend to be mostly from near countries or US States such as Texas, California and New Mexico.

Funny thing one of my cousins, writing in Spanish, expressed great concern at comming to the USA since he could not speak
English, sheesh where I now live, if you don't know Spanish you can't surive, since everyone here is a native speaker; btw it sounds very beautiful, I cant wait to get so I too can speak it.

as they say here
hasta manyana
