I used his version. I learned it by ear and as usual I put so much of myself into the tune that I had no I idea Movin In - Chicago - Chicago (Reel-To-Reel) the real tune began and I ended. Henrick Norbeck provides a variation you might be interested in but you will have to go to his site. Enjoy, Mark. I believe it has sufficient differences to merit this posting. Playing a rocking pedal figure from second octave g and a down to a TRUE C natural on the pipes is nigh on impossible even with responsive reeds.
Instead pipers cheat their way through the 3rd part in a number of ways. Some pipers with unusually strong masochistic tendencies and lots of time on their hands will develop the ability to play a "tight" c as a pedal tone, in reality a C but played so staccato and clipped its effect is purely rhythmic rather than melodic in effect.
If you play at a moderate pace with a good swing, this approach can work. One nit: That long f in the penultimate bar is NOT played as a true Fnor is it an F natural, but somewhere between. I usually lift the chanter and shade that f tonehole to produce a slightly sharp f natural or a very flat f. You want pretty music, go play baroque chamber pieces and leave the gritty stuff alone : P. Ive Remute - Poppy playing it a lot on the banjo recently.
I tend to play it like a fast hornpipe, i tend to "squawk" some of Movin In - Chicago - Chicago (Reel-To-Reel) notes and throw in triplets, and grace notes but i changed certain bits to suit the banjo, but its based on the original post by Mark.

Why is this tune difficult on pipes? I learned it from a Paddy Carty recording. No bother. The other recording I have of it is Peter and Noel Carberry, on a C set of pipes, and nothing tremendously complicated there. Marty, hope you are well? Chacigo piper Joe Shannon played a version of this tune.
I have a recoeding of him and will try to findit for you. Anyone know of the origin of The Chicago Reel or the composer? Lovely tune. Nice one. Unfortunately, you now have to contend with the Gsharp in the second part -perhaps Movin In - Chicago - Chicago (Reel-To-Reel) lesser evil?
Or worse: When you start to play this tune in B, on your D set!! If you are a member of The Session, log in to add a comment. Membership is free, and it only takes a moment to sign up. Does it go back to early Irish emigarnts to Chicago etc in the s. Informed, but still a guess.
