whisky in the Jar
« on: September 27, 2009, 11:31:03 PM »
I would very much like to learn to play this song. Is there sheet music made for the ocarina?  or  does anyone have a recorded piece that i can hear?   or how about the song the dutchman?

 yes this is the song. The version i usually listen to is more celtic. By a performer called spailpin. But there are many versions of this celtic tune.

Oh Ok... So this is not a song originally by Metallica.

I need to search for a version that is not played by Metallica first. I can't hear anything besides the drums in their youtube video.

Yeah, I think the Celtic version is much more ocarina friendly.

This is it?

 ;D Yea Spailpin is awesome, some other Great songs that he sings are the beggarman, fiddlers green,rising of the moon and nightinggale,.... all that would sound great with an ocarina. I love learning Irish folk on the ocarina... or atleast would like too.  I figured out how to play Scotland the brave, the same one in the teacarina video... fun fun fun :D

Yeah, The Dubliners are pretty great.
Did we ever get some music up for this?  I should check in with Dennis or one of the other people who's good with tabs!

I too would like to see these tabs (although I like the Metallica version more, it would still be a nice peice to add!)
