READING MADE EASY . Irish, Air (cut time). D Major/B Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Goodman's "Reading made Easy " is a duple-time variant of "Reading made Easy (1) (The)," made more transparent by Fr. John Quinn through the intermediary air "Tumbling down Teady's Acre", which, while still a triple-time melody (as is "Reading made Easy (1) (The)"), corresponds melodically more to Goodman's duple version.
