MERLE'S TUNE. AKA - "Liz Carroll's Reel." American, Reel. B Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Composed in 1988 by Celtic-style fiddler Liz Carroll (Chicago) for her friend Pam Kuras ('Merle'). Paddy (Offaly) O'Brien recorded it soon after as "Liz Carrol's Reel" in the key of A Dorian, which fit the B/C box better, although the low F# note puts it out of range on the fiddle.
