Yernagh Keoie (The Wild Irishman) 29 These tunes have been placed in progressive key order to create a satisfying Manx suite” that facilitates lever and pedal changes. This order also facilitates playing a few tunes in succession as a “Manx medley.” All tunes were typeset to fit exactly on two facing pages to eliminate any page turns within a piece. There are no lever or pedal changes required within each tune, only some lever or pedal presets in preparation for the next song. Guitar chords are included so that the melody may be played by any C instrument, accompanied by chords on harp, lute, guitar, or keyboard. Also, the transcribed harp part can be played on any keyboard instrument with only minor adjustments. Due to space constraints, first and second endings were only indicated above the flute/violin part in the full score and dynamics only within the harp part; but these markings apply to both instruments. (However, all markings are indicated on the separate instrumental leaflet.) Dynamics, fingering, and metronome arkings are provided throughout as an aid to performance. However, the harper should use whatever dynamics, fingerings, and tempos suit them, no matter what this book indicates! Note: The abbreviation “bdlc” used in this book refers to “bas dans les cordes” which means to play lower on the strings, but not as low as “pdlt” – près de la table – for more penetration of the lefthand melody. Also, the harp part of this entire book can be played on a harp of only 26 strings (3.5 octaves) from low C to high G.
