I have been getting tunes ready for our annual blockbuster Irish session/fish fry, and I came across a nice tune called the Basket of Turf. (O'Neill's #735) I have e-mailed the MIDI file to Joe Offer, and I hope it will appear here so you can have it, too.

The tune is in G, but a D# appears in the B part. The notes are F#, D#,F#, which call for a B chord rather than the Bm which usually hangs out with tunes in G. Somebody alert the Folk Police! Call in a forensic musicologist! This may well be the only D# to be played in all of River City on the day of March 17th.

Question: if an unexpected minor interval is a blue note, is an unexpected major interval a pink note?

Watch this site for the tune itself.

No, it is not pink! Any self-respecting student in basic art class knows that the opposite of Blue is YELLOW! The answer is, it's a Yellow note!
If you are in disbelief, try looking intently at something Blue--especially "Primary Blue", then look away at, say, a white wall. You will see a yellow spot in the shape of the Blue item. If you still don't believe it, ask at your local art supply shop. You might even want to take an art class.

Interesting tune. All but one of the entries at JC's are either E Dorian or E minor. One in G major, tho.

Sorry, Kaleea. Yellow may be the opposite on the color wheel, but yellow has too many bad connotations to serve the purpose here. For one things, it means "cowardly," and for another it's the color of egg yolks. I hate egg yolks.

Musicians: if you have a music program, right click on "Click to Play" above, then select "Save Target As." This will save the file BasketOfTurf.mid on your computer. Minimize Mudcat and use your music program to open the file. Then you can see it, print it, add chords....

Add a pick-up note at the front, a eighth-note E on the bottom line of the staff. There will be two E's to start the song. The piece was played AA BB. End the A part at the quarter-note E in measure 8, and treat the eighth-note B that follows as a pickup to the second part. (I had to omit these niceties in the MIDI file because my computer refuses to believe in pick-up notes.)

I hope you enjoy playing it.

I suggest that the note under discussion in this piece of Irish music be considered green.

Very nice tune Leeneia, and thanks for sharing it, and thanks to Joe for putting it up.

I've never heard of a colour associated with unexpected sharps before, although personally I'd think of it as a "red" note; because as one end of the visual spectrum (analog of flats) shifts to blue, and the other end (analog of sharps) shifts to red; the so called Doppler Shift.

And Pauline, *all* Irish notes are Green (except those composed before the last century when the colour of Irishness was sky blue)!
