Subject: Tune Req: The little beggarman
From: Maffet

Hello, I have one little shy question :-)
I play for half of year one my favorite tune which is Little beggerman (Red haired boy)- hornpipe. Original sheet music come from some harp magazine with free arrangement, but my teacher transposed tune for me to C. Now I haven't original print, so I dont know in which key it was and I have only hand written tune, which I really love to play.

I searched in www.thesession.org, but there I found only reel tune of the same name. So I searched at another place and I have found another sheet music for hornpipe in D for little beggarman, and few sounds to compare. It has the same beginning, but the second part is diffrent again. Is there any other version of this hornpipe tune?
:-)

Anyway I printed reel today too as it's really lovely tune.

It's a fun song to sing, too--though the band gets miffed when I ask if they can do it in D, and slow it down just a hair...so I wind up singing it Acapulco.

Aloha,
Mark

Gilderoy. 8-)
Thank you, thank you. I will print it and compare at home. I am not on the level to imagine music from sheets, even I found some sound sample on internet with gilderoy and it sounds similar.
Thank you again.

Mark - don't feel bad. I too had to switch "Little Beggerman" from A to D, and slow it down. But it's a great song to sing in that key. For fiddle and mandolin players it's just a matter of moving down a set of strings. More of a problem for guitar and banjo, though !
