BACK OF THE CHANGE [1], THE. AKA - "Back the Change." AKA and see "Beauty Spot (The)." Irish, Reel (cut time). D Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "Back of the Change [1]" is a cognate but distanced version of the reel usually known as "Beauty Spot (The)" today. The title perhaps refers to 'Back of the Change House' (a mercantile exchange), although that title belongs to another (Scottish) tune.
