A hornpipe from O'Neill's. Not your usual Irish banjo sound...

Well done Paul.  A difficult tune, is it not?  I think i remember trying to play this on mandolin years ago, and just giving up.

Thanks Lisa. Difficult, yes, with all those dang notes. I guess that's why Irish banjos were born... The thing with these Irish tunes is they get under my skin and won't let go until I can play them, somewhat. But I doubt if I'll ever get all the notes clearly.

Wow. I spent a lot of time years ago trying to get this up to speed on mandolin too, and never quite got there. Really nice playing up the neck!
