Subject: Mandolin players - Check Out Áine's Work
From: Aidan Crossey
Date: 14 Mar 03 - 07:57 AM

Áine has recently posted three tunes to The Mandolin Cafe's tablature archive; The Peanut Dress (don't ask!, well do ... but perhaps we'll let the lady in question regale you herself with the tale!), The Encyclopedia Hornpipe and a slow jig, Planxty Móira.

Now, all are fine tunes. However I really want to draw your attention to Planxty Móira. What a composition!

Áine is not only one of the most generous spirits who frequent this place, but she's a bloody good musician to boot! If I was Móira (Áine's daughter, by the way), I'd bask day and night in a rosy glow in the knowledge that this particular tune had been crafted in my honour!

So ... if you read mandolin tab, get your mando out of its case and give the tune a bash. Follow the link below.

http://www.mandolincafe.com/tab/moira.txt

If you're not, then I've set out the abc below:

X:1
T:Planxty Móira
M:6/8
L:1/8
Q:150
C:Áine Cooke

Enjoy!

Aye!

I've had the singular pleasure of previewing Aine's work and it is very good! Sometimes you just KNOW a person will be creative by her attitude and focus, Aine is one of the good ones.

(I keep a secret little Aine file at home...)

Peace, Mooh (guesting from Bruce County).

Those are very nice tunes, thank you and well done Aine, I particularly like 'The Peanut Dress' of those three.

She's not the Gaelic Goddess for naught!

Aine is not only a Gaelic Goddess - she's a southern belle as well. I'm lucky enough to have met both of these nice ladies. It sounds like I'm going to have to check this out. Maybe if I can talk her into an in person performance one of these days. Kudo's Aine !

Sorcha ...

I've posted the tune on Áine's behalf to the session.

Click here and the dots are available under the "sheetmusic" tab.

. . . blush . . . tá náire orm, leoga, a chairde!

Dear Aidan (and my dear fellow mandolinquents),

I'm totally gobsmacked. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. This is one of those (very few) times that I really don't know what to say . . .

I couldn't have even dreamed of playing the mandolin (or scribblin' any tunes, for that matter) without the caring advice, patience and encouragement of all you Mudcatters, and my special international trio of 'Mandolin Angels' -- Wesley S, Aidan, and Mooh. Wesley put his own mandolin in my hands and helped me overcome my fear of playing in public (well, in front of him, anyway), Aidan shook the cobwebs from the notes in my head with his wonderful music, and Mooh is the absolute best long-distance mandolin teacher in the world.

With 'angels' like these, who could go to the devil with a straight face?

Again, thank you so much for your kindness. And Aidan, you're full of surprises, aren't ya!?!

All the best, Áine

Way to go, Aidan!

'Bout time that bushel was pulled off her bright light. :>)

I second all the above; and note how quietly this creative genius has been at work, sharpening her edge and building her beauty in the moonlight hours, not telling a soul until some good chap like Aidan comes along and "outs" her!! :>)

Speaking of outs -- when do the recordings appear, dear GG?

Ah shucks!

(Btw Aine, I've got some more mando-stuff for you. I'll be home in a few days to send it to you...)

Peace, Mooh (watching the silent ice covered Sauble River under a clear blue sky.)

Nice Work Áine, I didn't know you played mandolin. I do remember hearing your songs on hearme a couple of years ago though. I'll have to look into the other stuff.
