I was in the North last week and it struck me when I saw the Ulster flag flying in loyalist areas, were they flying it also for the three counties of Ulster in the Republic.

Also very interesting that one of the symbols of the O'Neill's was the Red Hand, there are a number of stories as to the origins of the res hand but it was pre celtic.

The red hand has now become a major symbol for Northern Loyalists and yet it is one of the oldest Irish symbols.

Funny how people become blindly attached to symbols.

It is interesting to note from a musical point of view that it was Henry VIII who introduced the harp as the national symbol of IReland to replace the three crowns of Munster. He felt that the three crowns flag could be seen as a symbol of an alternative royal power.

Interesting that a symbol introduced by an English monarch should become such a strong symbol for Irish nationalists.

There is an interesting discussion of the Flight of the Earls of Tyrone and Tyrconnell at Sean J Murphy's site,  Irish Historical Mysteries.

Thank you, Martin.

That pun was a little too good for me. I thought there was some double meaning of 'earls' but of course it's in 'flight' (to fly / to flee). I guess I would never have understood that without your explanation.

Thanks again

Joerg

Joerg

An "earl" is a nobleman. In this context the "flight of the earls" refers to a period in Irish history when, ollowing defeat by the English, a large number of members of noble irish families fled to continental Europe. So he means another loss of the best of a generation, basically.

Hope I could help you, alice.

I forgot one important thing: What chord is better in a given case of course also depends from the key you transpose the song to. On the guitar different keys give different sounds and the 'best' chord may change with the key.

Subject: Chords Add: FLIGHT OF EARLS (Liam Reilly)
From: GUEST,Joerg

Still no chords? Try these:

I can [C]hear the [G7]bells of [C]Dublin / In this lonely [G7]waiting [C]room / And the [F]paper boys are [C]singing [(Am)]in the [G]rain [(F)][G]/ Not too [C]long be[G7]fore they [C]take us / To the airport [G]and the [C]noise [(C7)]/ To [F]get on board a [C]transat[G7]lantic [C]plane [(F)][C] / We've got [G]nothing [(G7)]left to [G]stay for / We have [F]no more [(Dm)]left to [C(G)]say / And there [F]isn't any [C]work for [F(Dm)]us to [G]do [(F)][G] / So fare[C]well you [G7]boys and [C]girls / Another [C]bloody [G]flight of [C]earls [(C7)]/ Our best [F]asset is our [C]best [G7]export [C]too [(F)][C]

These are by no means 'official' cords, they are my own suggestion. [x] means take x, [(x)] means try inserting x here, [x(y)] means take x but also try to replace it by y. What is better depends from the picking you use and also your own taste, and this applies for the choice between G and G7 anyway.

What is the meaning of 'earls'?

Murray, did you email to her? She has an old computer that has not allowed her to download all her email. I think some of it was lost. The ISP was trying to help her.

ok, follow these instructions:

Stand with good posture in front of a mirror.
Remove a tight belt if you are wearing one.
Inhale and allow your abdomen to expand as you breathe in. DO NOT lift your shoulders.
Exhale slowly.
You should see your waist and abdomen contract as the air goes out of your lungs.
Now, think of holding the muscles inside the floor of your abdomen down and continue to pull them down as you inhale.
Hold the muscles down as you inhale and exhale, and you should notice that you were able to breath in more air and take longer to exhale.
Become conscious of your lower ribs being able to expand out as you inhale, giving you more room for air.
Although the air is going into your lungs in your upper body, if you are aware of the feeling of pulling down in your lower body, the space in your diaphram will allow your lungs to expand more.
When you have to hit a high note, don't think "up" think "down" with those abdomen muscles.
By holding down those muscles and sustaining the space for your lungs, you can release the air with more control, more slowly, and with more power for volume if you want it.
Practice singing while using this technique.
It will seem awkward at first, but you will get to the point where you will do it automatically, especially when you hear how well it gets you to the high part of the range and how much easier it is to sing longer notes.

any questions?

thanks for "murder"

bill sang this song when he was here. My voice teacher came to listen. She was here for Bill, Allan, Les, and some of my friends who came over to play. She loved it all. "Marvelous, very authentic, marvelous voices," she said.
