Return from Fingal Counter Melody

Celtic Week is here!  In honor of this noble week I’ve been playing around with some recordings and tab to post.

So far, I’ve got a counter melody for Return from Fingal.

Here it is…

Return from Fingal Melody

This counter melody was composed by Jim Magill.  His wife, Beth, and I played a little gig in Hendersonville a month or so back, and she played this lovely counter melody on her flute while I played the tune on mandolin.  Before she packed up to attend the Swannanoa Gathering, I was able to get a copy of the music to tab out.  Ideally, I aim to create a recording of both these parts for the youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/ashevillemandolin.

I have also been working on a recording of Na Ceannabhain Bhana/The Black Rogue/The Noon Day Feast .

So far I’ve got an octave mandolin track and a mandolin track.  Once, I get it tightened up and a backing track I’ll post it.

All three of these tune can be found in the Asheville Celtic Mandolin Collection.
