The Rubber Band’s Brother

The Rubber Band’s Brother 

This slide was coposed during Éigse Dhiarmuidín whilest we were recording the album and goes with the "EIgse Slide" The first line bears a strong resemblance to another slide composed and recorded on the previous album (Triúr sa Draighean).  That one was originally called the “Rubber Band” after the rubber band, holding my accordion together, which snapped while we were rehearsing.  Caoimhin is mainly responsible for any accordion playing I do.  I forgot the name when we were writing the sleeve notes for the last cd and called it ‘Caoimhin’s slide’ but it was originally the ‘Rubber Band”.  And now, here is it’s brother!
