Request to the Irish among you....

  1. National Anthem...

    Any of you Irish out there got a transcription or a tab for the N.A.? Doesn't have to be the bass part, main melody will do fine.

    I think I've got most of it worked out, but I'm sure I'm missing something out of it somewhere.

    What is it with this whole thing of playing the N.A. at the end of a gig? I, for one, would far rather not play it all. It really changes the whole mood of the place. One minute you're rocking the place out, and end on a high note, and then the next thing it's into the N.A.! Talk about killing a mood, but it seems to be the done thing. At least it is round this part of the woods.

    sin na fianna fail ata faoi gheal ag eireann, bionn dar slua...etc etc.. God I am sick to death of playing that shaggin thing, we refuse to play it at the end of the night. It's funny how the ones who ask for it are mostly the skinheaded, tattooed wannabe Ra heads who couldnt even tell you what amhrain na bhfian(sp) even means.

    True story, after a paddies day gig in Prague this mucksavage from tallaght came up to me and said "yis are a deadly band but ye never played de bleedin anthem":rolleyes: I was gonna point out that we were in PRAGUE!!!..
