Ireland, West Kerry. G Major. Standard tuning fiddle. Unfortunately, the tune as played by the group was 'totally inaccurate':. Paddy Moloney smiles at the memory. A pub session tradition has grown up around the tune in which the third part is sometimes sung with out words, though in many circles the 'ya-da-duh-da-da-da' singing is by now considered a hackneyed bore.

This is a kind of silly sounding tune. It can be fun to play around with the melody in that third part to really bring out that silliness. On each of those long notes somebody stands up to play it. If the tune is going fast enough, this can look pretty ridiculous.

Ah, the silliness of it all. Yeah, I guess it is actually in the key of G. All three of them? This sort of thing seems to be common, the G tunes with the sharpened Cs.

For some unknown reason anyone who has anything to do with Morris dancing is likely to stand up during the third part of this yelling "Da da da ditty da". I find that if the opening phrase is played D-B-D instead of D-C -D then it rules out all confusion as to the key and makes it a straightforward composition in G.

Second part I play an octave down mandolin or guitar. The Pogues play this. They play the C part quite differently though. During the third part, in our session there will usually be a few people who sing: "Heigh, ho! Heigh, ho! Chris Droney plays a two part version of this tune on his album "The Fertile Rock".

He plays the third part of this version as the first of his own and the B part of his own is the second part of the one posted here. Can anyone let me know the name of this slide or if I am so lucky someone give me the sheet music for same? There are only two parts, the usual first part you mentioned and a different second part, no third part. Perhaps it is the version you seek.

Best of luck. I achieved embarassed shuffles and nervous looks at a session in N Wales or close over Christmas. I counted that as a success. My words go: "Hi ho! Tiz Dingle Regatta - not Dingles Regatta. Dingle Bay, Co. Tune version 4 above is an early 19th century version in G major , called "Garcon Volage" trans.

I have added the repeat signs. William Winter was a village shoemaker in Somerset, a fiddle player possibly also a flautist , playing in the church band church organs were expensive and uncommon in those days and for village dances and festive occasions.

During he compiled his tune book of over tunes, the manuscript of which was lost but in rediscovered in a London second hand bookshop. The manuscript has been scholarly researched and edited by Geoff Woolfe, and published in by the Halsway Manor Society, Crowcombe, Somerset. There is a lot of history associated with this music. This was written by Tom Billy Murphy of Ballydesmond, and was a very popular slide in the area.

I know he did not call it the Dingle Regatta, however. Joe Joyce went over from Boston and picked up the jumping as well as the tune name. I suppose a lot can happen in 20 years, but I have to wonder, where the heck did this stuff come from? If you are a member of The Session, log in to add a comment.

Membership is free, and it only takes a moment to sign up. ABC sheet music. But the bars are still too many, i think. I dunno, this one always makes me think of Bibbetty Bobbitty Boo. Who was responsible for the 3 part version of this tune? Was it Sean O Riada? This is mostly V1 with 2 small note changes but spread across 6 lines instead of 3 for old eyes!
