The Beare Island Reel

I think this tune was made up by box and fiddle player Finbar Dwyer. It has a fiddly G sharp in the first part but is good therapy. Just to prove the point about the G sharp, I've made a mess of it myself in a couple of places. Please don't feel obliged to learn the messes.

(24/04/07  - Just played this one again after hearing the state of the last try.  The messes are still there but I've moved them around a bit.)
