The Best ITM Tune-Learning Tutor

Forgotten Fling (G)

I picked up the “Forgotten Fling” from Kilnamartyra, Co. Cork, fiddler Connie O’Connell on his CD Ceol Cill Na Martra (2000).  I don’t know much about it, except that the name of the tune is antipodal, a philologists joke.  In Nietzsche’s old unfinished manuscripts, including odd bits of paper with writing on them, an archivist once found a note reading “I forgot my umbrella.”  Jacques Derrida, the father of the branch of post-modernism called nouveaux critiques (“Deconstruction” in English), wrote a book about Nietzsche centered on this note, memory, and the valorization of remembering entitled Spurs (1979) – it was an enjoyable read, as I remember.  Anyway, I can’t help but recalling that book and its discussion whenever I remember this tune.  Obviously.

Chords:
