The Flowers of Antrim

Another fine hornpipe. And I found this one incredibly easy to play, even as a beginner.

I remember this hornpipe being played on a record with a melody instrument and an acoustic bass guitar. I was so impressed by the sound of the bass that I scraped all my Belgian francs together and went to a music shop to buy one. A few months later, my girfriend and I separated. She took the bed. So I swapped my acoustic bass guitar for a bed. Those were the times, my friend...

The bass lines of the piano is a memorial to my lost acoustic bass guitar.
