To me The Green Mountain is a great fluteplayer's tune, propelled by rolls and plenty of offbeat D's to honk on :thumbsup:

The "honking Ds" are the most fun in that tune :D .

I don't know, the tune is widely popular, whistles, pipes, fiddles and concertinas, all non honking, seem to fancy the tune as much as fluteplayers do. The widely diverse versions of the tune are are good indicator of it's popularity too.

Anyway, was just listening to one Gary Hastings calls 'Lannigan's Other Ball' , I may have a go at that one today. See if it sticks :D

In fact I could find more versions on instruments other than flute. But still -- it is much fun to play on the flute :wink: . And "honking" is fun on any tune. But that is just me. Just listening to Conal O'Grada a lot since Richard recommended him to me.

O Grada's honking on his version of the green mountain is off the charts

Widely popular is still great for me. We have an older crew that run a monthly session here (on hold) and I think the leader is maybe just bored with all the hits, understandably. So he comes up with all these obscure tunes that are hard to research. cheeky guy. Reminds me a bit of you. haha

I've got Sligo Maid sounding alright so maybe Green Mtn will be a good follow up. Guess I'll just choose a version at random.

That guy is a shredding box player!! Any chance you know what similar sheet music would go with that? I can't learn by ear at this stage.
