Tune of the Month for February 2019: Paddy Carey's
« on: February 01, 2019, 02:20:17 PM »

Hi folks - this month's winner at the 3rd time of asking!

Paddy Carey's - a 48 bar jig with plenty of drive; is it English, or Irish? Well, no-one really knows but it's certainly popular in England. Fits beautifully on one row. And here's Chris Wood and Andy Cutting playing it - it's the first tune here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ct-oGOAQAzk

Plenty more context and some ABC here: https://thesession.org/tunes/2902

Might have to crack the one-row out for this one :-)

I took Clive at his suggestion to post Paddy Carey as theme of the month in January, https://youtu.be/hrFrc44lx-A

I may rework it before the end of the month, perhaps a different speed or key, but meanwhile.

All the best

I'm very fond of the Knight & Squeezy version and so I have been voting for this for a couple of months or so. I had a go at it last month for the “alternative” totm but it didn't quite work out, so I've been practising harder since then.
So... here’s mine.

As usual I'm trying not to watch before I've got my own version going (which is actually close, but also as usual, I can't remember it 2 minutes later).
Enjoying this tune, and playing the DG a lot because of it.

If I could grow warts like that, I'd show 'em at the county fair!

Can I share a piano accordion version for inspiration? Left hand is something special, but tune playing is equally restrained.

After struggling most of yesterday to get this tune towards recording standard on any of my 2 rows I thought I'd give it a go on my one row 4 stop. Wish I'd done this in the first place!  Recorded under room lights last night so the colour's a bit washed out.

Agreed!  I'm liking the one row versions a lot.  Totally unambiguous.  Time to dig out the old Hlavacek and have a go.

A slightly unfulfilling version - rushing and clumsy. I'll practise it given a chance and re-video. Just done in case this is my only opportunity. Unlisted as not polished enough yet.

Yes, but you have great rhythm in your right hand. Excellent version.

Been playing this set for dances for many many years, during which time it has been subjected to the various corruptions (or warts as Mr. McGrooger might call them) you can hear in this video. There you go, that's how I play it now.

Quite a standard version, played on a D/G Tommy. The set is completed by "Morgan Rattler", this is one of our standard session sets.

Snap! I suspect we're not the only ones playing these two together. Nicely done Tufty.

Nice!  Particularly like the litlle grace note "cuts" invoking the pipes/fiddle/whistle articulations.

I've written an equal length jig to go after Paddy Carey's. Put in a B chord for Gena. If thirds in, you need to play A major chords at times, and Am7 at others.

Here's the version from Kerr's Merry Melodies Vol. 4 with a fourth part.

Here's an attempt at playing it a bit slower than i normally would.

Video quality seems to be down today; settings on the webcam I think. Played on a Castagnari Mory in D/G.

Well done for finding a fourth part Mitch. Great performance as always & good to hear you playing again.
