DEAR WINNIE [2]. AKA and see "Dear Oona (2)," "Una Arúin." Irish, Slow Air (4/4 time). G Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. "Many of the long notes are marked, in [William] Forde's MS., with shakes, as Walsh played them on his violin: too many I think: and I have omitted them. As to the bar marked 'A', those who wish to avoid the ornamental notes will sinply play the four large notes. A very lovely melody" (Joyce).
