P. Joe’s Reel  -  Mandolin

 

    This delightful tune was written for Martin’s father, who led the Tulla Ceili Band for many years. The syncopation between the rhythm and melody is deceptive at first, and it is well suited to the sparse accompaniment style on the mp3 included below. It’s not a hard tune to play, perhaps a little more so on the guitar.

Sorry that the scan ends so abruptly. My scanner is currently playing tricks on me. It’s all there though, and a fun tune to play for sure. It’s from the Martin Hayes/Dennis Cahill album “Welcome Here Again.”
